This is a FREE service of Indiana Biolab. By clicking on the email address of any student below you can send an email to the penpal. We hope this will be a way for students K-12 and college to learn about science, farming, climate, geography, school, and other activities in distant states and countries. K-12 students: please check with your parents before joining Penpals for Students, and please share the replies with them. College students who are willing to act as mentors to K-12 students are encouraged to say so in their listing. Please do not use all capitals; it makes your letter hard to read and readers will move to the next person.
