Science education in Mexico faces serious challenges, including a lack of financial and educational resources that prevents students from reaching their full potential. In this presentation, Manuel invites us to collaborate in a project that aims to expand access to high quality science education and to inspire the future generation of young scientists: Clubes de Ciencia México (CdeCMx).
