Thank You Miss Cozens for Making Science Fun #SayTkU
My daughter thanks one of her teachers for making science fun!
Science is all around us but not everyone loves science. I know that science was my least favorite subject in school. For my daughter it was too at first until she had a teacher that made science fun for her. We all have things we like and others we don’t but it’s truly a gift when someone whether it’s a teacher, friend, parent, or family member can spark interest in any subject. Science is sometimes one of those areas that aren’t always considered “fun” until someone shows you how it can be. That’s why we want to say thank you to those who foster curiosity in other when it comes to science.
I personally did not have a mentor who sparked curiosity in me for science but my daughter did and that was one her teachers in elementary school Miss Cozens. To this day my daughter still talks about her favorite teacher Miss Cozens from elementary school, my daughter just started grade nine. Thank you Miss Cozens for inspiring our daughter it’s truly a gift. Science is all around us and as a science-based company, Bayer is committed to creating awareness of the importance of science and fostering curiosity, creativity and critical-thinking skills. Making Science Make Sense® (MSMS), Bayer’s company-wide initiative, allows students
to learn science by doing science through hands-on, inquiry-based experiences.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the MSMS program, Bayer is announcing a five-year commitment to providing access to one million hands-on science learning experiences for kids by 2020, beginning with the “Tk U” campaign. I love it when individuals, groups and companies recognize the value of mentors and inspiring children in different areas, science in particular as in the past not as many kids were interested in science. I know for myself I’ve never had much interest in science but then I didn’t have anyone who sparked that interest in me. Yet both my husband and my daughter have fond memories of teachers who sparked an interest in science in them. For my husband he still finds science interesting and he and my daughter chat about different science topics on occasion.
Mentors can make a difference in the life of others; they can be inspiring in different ways. So why not say thank you to someone who inspired your curiosity around science? Post a photo with a handwritten “thank you,” a short video or written message to SayTkU.com or on your social networks using the hashtag #SayTkU. For each “thank you” message shared, Bayer will provide a child with free admission to a STEM venue, such as a trip to a local science museum, fostering hands-on science-focused exploration.
Who inspired you? Feel free to share we’d love to know!
