"If you love science, you can connect to almost every single scientist that you ever heard of. You can tweet to them and one of the most powerful things for a kid is to have a tweet back to them, to have a post back to them. When one of their favorite authors responds to them, that is so incredibly motivating to know they care about my message. It's not just my teacher that's encouraging me. They care about my message too." - Liv Van Ledgtje
