Information for K-12 Teachers
TAS Visiting Scientist Program

Many TAS members are excited to work with K-12 teachers and students throughout the state. Some ways that TAS members may help K-12 teachers include answering questions or even visiting your classroom to talk about science!

How might you as a teacher use the TAS Visiting Scientist Program to support your students?

Here are just a few common examples…

Invite a scientist (TAS member) in for a career day talk.

Invite a TAS member scientist to come do a science experiment or activity with your class.

Maybe you as a teacher would like to spend time in the summer working alongside a TAS scientist in their laboratory?

Engage your class in a citizen science project organized by a TAS scientist - find them through the TAS webpage.

Find science fair judges through the TAS website

TAS members and scientists are typically university and college faculty members, but we also have members who are undergraduate or graduate STEM majors, post-doctoral fellows, clinicians, government employees, industry employees, etc.

TAS members and scientists are pleased to support teaching and learning in STEM fields and wish to serve teachers and students from public or private K-12 schools, informal science education settings, homeschool groups, club/organizational leaders, etc.

TAS members and scientists either explicitly or implicitly aim to accomplish one or more of the following:

Increase student interest in STEM fields

Diversify participation in STEM fields

Increase engagement in science by teachers, students, their families, and the general public

Increase science content knowledge of teachers, students, their families, and the general public

Increase positive attitudes towards science by teachers, students, their families, and the general public

Reduce fear and/or distrust of STEM concepts by demystifying science and scientists.
