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.
