KAS Committees



Science Education & AdvocacyDr. Victor Taveras, a volunteer on KAS' Science Education committee
This committee works on Science Policy mostly at the state level. We follow legislation during the legislative season from January - March and also advocate at other times of year.  We  promote strong STEM education, building bridges between K-12 science educators and our institutions of higher education.

Public Engagement
We take science out of the lab and into the street, the park, the after-school club, the radio studio, or anywhere else we find opportunities to share our science! We're practicing our science communication skills and building science-literacy . Email Us
