With these guides, you too can use these learning aides at home and in the classroom. The following session plans are available as […]


Why should you donate to KAST?
  • Our science sessions benefit students in elementary schools. Most of your donations go toward buying materials to make our activities engaging and fun.
  • We are expanding our programs to over 14 other elementary schools. If you’ve seen or heard about one of our sessions in action, you know about our dedication to our student participants.
  • All KAST team members are high-school SSL employees; we don’t earn any money from (and are supporters of) this program.
  • Within a few weeks, we will provide you with a detailed report of how specifically your contribution helped elementary school kids.

All donations are deeply appreciated. Thank you for your support of science education!
