That’s all you need to do!
These days kids are flooded with information.
How confusing it must be for them to sort through it all.
To figure out how to process and apply it to their lives.
Information can get lost, or “deleted” in the process.
The same can happen with #STEM outreach.
You could go into a classroom of students and flood them with more information to process.
You could get them talking!
Talking is good.
Talking means engagement.
Talking means there is a higher chance that they are processing what you are saying.
And, for you…the volunteer…just getting someone talking seems doable. Right?
Thanks so much for meeting with the students today. You got them talking!
