Dear Mr. Spangler,
I just want to thank you for everything you do for kids. Your science experiment ideas have helped me SO much with providing science fun to at-risk kids. Recently, I did an event for low-income housing. I taught bubble science using your method of cutting the pipettes, using glycerine in the bubble mixture, and using hand gloves. The kids LOVED it and I had SO much fun teaching it! Here's a picture of me teaching. And your slime goo kit has helped me ...provide "make your own slime" stations at shelters, refugee afterschool programs, and foster events!! Who doesn't love slime?
Oh and my mom and I watched your STEM camp live FB post, because we hope to do a stem camp next summer for foster kids, and I think you're so right...I need to let all the kids I meet know that there's a job out their waiting just for them! I hope to inspire the next scientists, too.
So, thank you again for everything you do and for helping me empower kids!!
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 12 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
