Kentuckians for Science Education

We are a non-profit organization made up of Kentuckians dedicated to ensuring that our Commonwealth maintains high standards for science education.

From working with the public to building relationships with policymakers, our goal is simple:

To advocate for high quality science education.

What We Do

Science Education Policy

Changes in the quality of science education often begin at the state legislative and executive changes through new laws and regulations. We monitor these branches of government and respond to proposes that would affect the quality of science education in our state.

Collaborative Efforts

There are many other science and education organizes whose missions and purposes align with ours. We are always seeking opportunities to collaborate and coordinate efforts with these organizations to ensure a unified vision.

Public Engagement

Even though most people believe that science is a good thing, it can be difficult to trust science and its discoveries. After all, the process of scientific discovery is messy, expensive, and sometimes doesn’t give us what we expected – or want. We believe that a public that understands and accepts science is crucial to high quality science education, and working with the public is an important mission of ours.

Science Education Resources

It can be hard to find high quality materials to help parents, teachers, and students understand scientific concepts and methods. Here, we collect a variety of resources that we think will be helpful for you in your science education efforts.

Who We Are

Board of Directors

Our newly elected Board of Directors includes students, scientists, educators, and parents from across the state. Find out who they are and how you can contact them.

Governing Documents

We abide by a set of ratified By-laws and an Advocacy and Legislative Platform that governs the responsibilities of our leadership and the actions we can take.
