The goal of this blog series is to provide STEM pen pals with inspiration and ideas from real STEM pen pal letters. We asked our 2020-21 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 Marissa Adams to a 6th grade pre-scientist for round 1. The theme this round was: STEM career pathway.
The letter was annotated and reviewed by LPS Teacher Nahdia Kchouri, and here’s what she had to say:
Overall, why was this letter exceptional?
The letter has a lot of visuals and is written in kid-friendly language.
