Welcome to Ad Astra Kansas Foundation

Founded in 2001, the Ad Astra Kansas Foundation is an information resource focusing on
high-tech and space-tech research in Kansas and promoting STEM education in our state.

 

Science in Kansas, 150 years and counting

The Ad Astra Kansas Initiative is sponsoring a project for the Kansas Sesquicentennial; Science in Kansas: 150 Years and Counting. 

We have created a series of "trading cards" highlighting Kansas scientists of accomplishment with the goal of inspiring young Kansans to go into STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.  

The final set of trading cards are available now!! To download all the trading cards click here.
