I just wanted to touch base as Ruth has helped get the information out on the first fall leadership. It is taking a team approach to get everything going this year.
It has been a goal to get our Fall Leaderships scheduled 3 years out. We are TRYING to get Wichita State and Pittburg State in our rotation. I will look to get the next 2 years planned here shortly and apologize for the late notice on the dates for fall leadership this year. Graciously, Chaparral offered up their facility, which is a neat opportunity (October 15th -one day) and then Ft. Hays State followed suit to offer their site (November 12th- one day) and this allows schools the opportunity to choose site and date to accommodate their needs. The morning sessions will be the same, however, the afternoon sessions will be different. Tours in the Anthony/Harper/Chaparral area and Make a Boat at Ft. Hays.
If you have a site location or idea for one of our Fall Leadership conferences...PLEASE share. Ruth or myself really look into options for our students.
Hope your schools are off to a good start and I look forward to sharing some neat things that are happening with Kansas TSA.


Hello all,
I hope that you are all gearing up for another year of wonderful education!
There are some many things going on with STEM education and we are growing momentum. I have been swamped with personal life and trying to get things done with TSA. I have some things that I need to get out to all of you.
1) 1st Fall Leadership is not totally confirmed but...we believe that Chaparral High School will be sponsoring the conference Wednesday, October 15.
2) 2nd Fall Leadership will be at Fort Hay State University again on Wednesday, November 12th.
3) State Conference is April 2-4, 2015 at Webster Conference Center in Salina, KS
4) I am trying to set up a few workshops to help with TEAMS, VEX, Junior Solar Sprint and of course Engineering by Design.
I will be sending out the calendar of all related STEM events soon.
I would like to have a guestimate on how many students you will be bringing and to which site/date.
Thanks, --more to come soon.


You are invited to the Cherokee Strip TSA Conference will be held in Newkirk, OK on December 6th. More information as well as registration will follow as the time for the conference approaches. Hope you can make it.

I forgot to remind you that our dues increased for state by $1.00 so it will be $6.00 for state and $9.00 for nationals = $15.00 per student.


Registration for the 1st Fall leadership Conference is now open, this event is one day only.
