Sparking “Little” Aha Moments

Explain how to spark aha moments and you’ll get media coverage. I’m #SparkingAhaMoments with the White House today. You can too! Read this press release which contains links to children’s activities for year-long “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day (TODASTW)” experiences. The TODASTW Foundation recently partnered with “Big Brothers Big Sisters of America” (BBBSA) and mentees aka “Littles” will be brought to work this year. The rest of the year (for the first time ever) there will be activity guides for inspiration summer, fall and winter. This includes creativity curriculum from Oscar-winning producer, Barnet Bain. He pulled activities from his book, “The Book of Doing and Being,” to spark aha moments in children and adults. Download the guides.

Other people in the news today inspiring “aha” moments include members of the women’s national soccer team who have won Olympic gold medals and a World Cup last year. They filed a federal complaint. It’s leaving many with discussion and insight, to say the least. (Fans of – also sponsors of the 2016 TODASTW #SparkingAhaMoments activity guides – would have something to say about this news.)

There are many newsmakers who spark aha moments. You can be one of them. Pick a seasonal news tie-in, like TODASTW Day, and tell your media contacts your insights. Then we’ll all be inspired by your tips, tools and aha stories.
