Calling all scientists!!!
Looking for a way to make a big impact with relatively little effort ? Do you like talking about your research to a captive audience that won’t run away? Do you actually remember how to write a letter that’s not an e-mail? (Seriously though….).
You are in luck. The group “Letter’s to a Pre-Scientist” are currently looking for science pen pals to inspire kids who might not normally interact with REAL scientists.
This is something that could take less than 30 minutes of your time, yet make a huge difference for a young person. Who knows, you might even find some of that much needed inspiration as you trudge through proofreading that last grant application.
To participate, you just sign up at www.prescientist.org and commit to writing four letters a year to your pen pal. Tell all your science friends.
