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 all classroom science teachers. The SPoCs serve as the local communication mechanism to keep information flowing to the ones 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 have the opportunity for greater networking in their region, as facilitated by their elected KSTA Board Member. SPoCs will be identified by a special badge during the 2020 Annual Conference, listed in the conference program, and attend a meet-and-greet with KSTA Directors and KDE personnel.
