KSTA is seeking classroom teachers or coaches who agree to serve as a Science Point of Contact (SPoC) for their school and/or district. The SPoC will serve as a liaison for receiving key information (2-3 contacts per month) to improve science teaching and learning, and getting that information into the hands of those who have the opportunity to make the biggest difference in learning: the classroom teacher.
Examples of information that will be shared directly with SPoCs: direct email from KDE related to science opportunities, grants and professional development, sharing venue for regional science opportunities, opportunities for regional science involvement.
The SPoCs will develop greater networking in their region, as facilitated by their elected KSTA Board Member District Director. SPoCs will be identified by a special badge during the Annual Conference, listed in the conference program, and attend a meet-and-greet with KSTA Directors and KDE personnel.
