Kansas Association of teachers of science  --  kats

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

The KATS website has a new look and a new host.  The board decided at its September, 2016 meeting to move the site to the Wild Apricot Company of Toronto, a firm which specializes in web sites for organizations.


The hallmark event of the KATS organization each year is the April conference.  Each year dozens of teachers from all corners of the state and from every grade level converge on Rock Springs Ranch near Junction City to spend a weekend sharing ideas and enthusiasm for science teaching.
