    I am an eighth grade science teacher at Massabesic Junior High School
    of MSAD #57, in Waterboro, Maine. Two years ago I started a project
    called Ask A Scientist. It involves weekly email communication
    between a small group of students and a science/technology
    professional. Each week, students will ask questions based upon a
    theme (eg. daily routine, technology used, measurements used,
    educational preparation), and create dialogue based on the
    professional's response. The project lasts about 8 weeks.

    Last fall, 40 individuals worked with my 100+ students. It was a
    project that the students referred to throughout the year because of the
    meaningful and current information that was transferred.

    A commitment of one email per week is required. If you are involved
    in active research or practice in the many fields of science and
    technology, and you are interested in participating this year, please
    let me know by emailing sending an email to: Be sure to include your name, your area of
    expertise, and your current career. This information is critical to
    match student interests with a corresponding professional.

    If you wish to review further project details, please visit: click on the Projects button,
    and then click on the Ask a Scientist logo.

    Thank you in advance, and I look forward to hearing from you.
