KAST is on a mission to revolutionize youth science education.

But what does that mean? Here are the primary channels through which KAST is changing how we approach science education.

HANDS-ON & FUN

Forget the rote memorization - KAST uses its own specially developed curriculum of lesson plans based around engaging, hands-on experiments.

PROMOTING EQUITY

We offer our program for free, targeting underserved elementary schools to close the opportunity gap.

YOUTH HELPING YOUTH

Our high school volunteers understand the needs of the elementary school classrooms they were a part of only years ago.

  • The kids love KAST. They ask me every day if they have science today.

    Jacey Reynolds
    Wasatch Elementary School

  • KAST is the first volunteer activity I genuinely enjoyed. I found out about it at the end of my freshman year, and I've been looking forward to each session of it ever since.

    TJHSST, KAST Volunteer and Co-Director of TJHSST KAST

  • KAST has changed my life because, while I have taught students science concepts, I have also learned to lead and stay open to new ideas, both from volunteers and students. I believe that every student should have the opportunity to experience a STEM education and KAST makes this possible.

    Tejal Pakti
    KAST Volunteer and President of Oakton KAST in VA

  • I have had so much fun establishing KAST at Novi. It's really been great to go back to my old elementary school and implement this program that I know will benefit these kids. These kids get to learn about things I didn't even know about until I got to high school - it's truly amazing.
