Awesome letter: creative letters further spark curiosity

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.

The letter was annotated and reviewed by LPS Teacher Nahdia Kchouri, and here’s what she had to say:

The letter has a lot of visuals and is written in kid-friendly language.
