Ad Astra Kansas

Kansas Day — January 29, 2008

The Ad Astra Kansas News has participated in Kansas Day activities at the state capitol building in Topeka for the past two years. In 2008,  Ad Astra Kansas materials were displayed in the Kansas Commission on Aerospace Education booth. In 2007, the governor's theme for Kansas Day was "To the Stars." Geared towards students in grades 3-9, the Ad Astra Kansas News display theme was "Kansas Kids Reaching for the Stars Thru Hot Science, Cool Museums, Super Stargazing and Rockin' Rocketry."
