We’re sharing real STEM professional letters to pre-scientists annotated by LPS teachers to provide STEM pen pals with inspiration and ideas for their own letters. We asked our 2021-22 LPS teachers to pick a letter that stood out to them and tell us why. We hope this series serves as a resource for pen pals to make letters accessible and engaging for pre-scientists.
This letter was written by STEM pen pal Brooke Owen to a 5th grade pre-scientist for round 1. The theme this round was: STEM Career Pathways.
The letter was annotated and reviewed by LPS Teacher Jackie Ma, and here’s what she had to say:
Brooke’s letter is handwritten and kid friendly. She included information about her personal life and her job. She connects well to the student’s personal interests!
Check out the letter below with Mrs. Ma’s annotations in a white text box. Thanks to Brooke for not only being a great pen pal, but also allowing us to annotate and publish her letter so others can benefit!
