Kansas Association of Teachers of Science (KATS)

KATS is the District 11 chapter of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). The purpose of the KATS shall be the advancement, stimulation, extension, improvement, and coordination of science teaching in all fields of science at all educational levels.

KATS Kamp will be held at Rock Springs near Junction City on April 15-16, 2016. Learn more about KATS Kamp and view photos from previous years. Since KATS 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.
