Help Parents Explain Science to Middle School Students

Looking for teachers who can offer advice on how parents can engage kids in science. Please share your knowledge for a book that I am writing with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Contact me offline if possible - aimee@sterncommdc.com. I really appreciate your help.

That was pretty vague wasn't it? I am writing a book for parents with the American Association for the Advancement of Science on the science of alcohol. It also has a series of companion lessons for middle school teachers on the same topic. Middle school kids love science and we are hopeful that explaining some of the scientific facts on how alcohol affects the body - that it affects every system, it's chemical make-up, brain research showing that it can harm developing parts of their brain such as those that store memory, etc. will provide an additional tool for parents as they try to get their kids to delay drinking. Our Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Science-Inside-Alcohol/33451484521. So what I 'm really looking for is ideas on how to engage kids in this topic. Does that help?

Hi Aimee
Are you looking for activities families can engage in, strategies to help students be successful throughout the school year, preparation before entering a middle school science program... There are lots of science teachers here and some clarification may give them a boost to respond.

Hi Aimee - Do you see the embedded link in the post? I'm always wondering if things are working or not. I will see what I can do about teachers to interview - how long is the interview - are there any incentives? Kim

Thanks Kim - please forward it along. What I really want though is science teachers to interview - if you know anyone who might be helpful let me know. Aimee

Hi Amy - I just got an email about a Data Collection Instrument for Family Involvement - seemed like it might be of interest to you. Kim
