Kansas Citizens for Science sponsors a Raspberry Pi Innovation Contest during school year. The motivation is to increase opportunities for students in coding and engineering. Contestants must program a Raspberry Pi to run a piece of machinery.
Kansas Citizens for Science provides a Raspberry Pi and $150 grant for materials.
The hallmark event of the Kansas Association of Teachers of Science (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. http://www.kats.org/
During election years for legislative candidates or members of the State Board of Education, KCFS sends out questionnaires that ask about the candidates’ positions on science-related issues.
Join other KCFS members to meet and discuss interesting science topics.
