KATS Kamp will beheld at Rock Springs near Junction City on April 14-16, 2016. Learn more about KATS Kamp. SinceKATS is all about Kansas students and their teachers, our theme this year is “The Fourth Dimension of Teaching is You” and this short video introduces us to a Sterling, KS teacher that took the initiative to run with a student question. With Dan Whisler’s leadership, Sterling students have taken the VOLT project across the United States. Dan will be one of our KATS Kamp Keynote speakers this spring to share with us how they made it happen.
