Welcome Back! 

The 2015-2016 year has many wonderful opportunities on the horizon. Our mission is to be a voice for quality science education in Alaska, empowering teachers and promoting student achievement. Our goal as an organization is to provide educators with a forum to discuss science and pedagogy. We are here to serve our members and to help  network with other educators throughout the state. There are many ways for you to help promote our association and continue to bring Science into the forefront of the minds of community members and state stakeholders. 

I challenge each of you this upcoming year to invite a colleague to become a member of our association so we build a strong advocacy group for Science Education in Alaska.
