Love these posters. Have spread them throughout the science classrooms at my school and all the students enjoy reading them. They have become the root of most of our science extended thinking questions.

I want to tell you how much excitement this program has generated in my school. Kids are always hanging out outside my classroom, they have brought their parents to read the poster and other teachers. It has generated a "buzz" about science. From my perspective, the poster is beautiful, it was super easy for me to get up and going, and it will be easy to sustain, and it gets kids talking science...what a great idea and thank you for making this available to teachers. My prize is lunch with a scientist at their lab

Thanks for your comments Tish, we're happy to hear from you. If you have any tips specific to implementing STOP in a science center environment, we hope you'll pass them on to us. I'm sure it would be useful to others implementing in similar venues.

Just returned home (to a flood) and met with groups of museum educators who really like the idea of STOP for Science. On the plane I had a chance to read over the lesson plans- my director is excited with the fact that this program is so perfect for a small science center with fewer education staff- volunteers can really feel like they are accomplishing something here.
But I too am planning to take this whole idea on the road to area schools where they can take about a month per poster and discuss, give out prizes, etc. Finally something cool for the elementary level!
