For Students & Families

Pen Pal Program


The Letters to a Pre-Scientist pen pal program provides the opportunity for students to connect with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Professional from our global network during a year-long pen pal program.

Our mission is to get all students excited about science by fostering engagement with a STEM Professional who works in a field a student has expressed interest to learn about science, college, careers, and new parts of the world while improving their reading and writing in science class. We hope this experience inspires students to discover possibilities in STEM.

Sound fun? Our program is hosted by science teachers during the school day, so the best way to get involved is to share our site with your student’s science teacher!
