CSTA is the only statewide professional organization offering leadership and representation to all science educators—in every science discipline at every grade level, Kindergarten through University. In the last several years, CSTA has earned significant recognition for its successes at the state level. CSTA offers a clear, unified voice for all science educators when it comes to the state standards, instructional materials, and other issues affecting the quality of classroom instruction.
CSTA is a 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID: 94-2926545), and donations made to CSTA are tax-deductible.
This January 3, 2014 CSTA is celebrating 50 years of promoting high quality science education in California. Individuals who make a tax deductible donation to CSTA of $50 or more will be sent a commemorative 50th Anniversary pin and will be recognized in California Classroom Science.
CSTA has been able to accomplish its recent successes only because of the existence of a state office and staff and volunteers who are available to step up at critical times. But we need the support of all science educators in the state to be able to continue these efforts. Here's how you can help:
Membership: Keeping your membership in CSTA active year after year is one of the best ways to show your ongoing support for excellence in science education. Many of CSTA's administrative costs are subsidized by membership dues.
Corporate Sponsorships: Your company can help support CSTA by sponsoring CSTA events, conference activities, web pages, merchandise, and more. Corporate sponsorship is a great way to get your company's name in front of science educators from all grade levels and all science disciplines from throughout the state. Corporate sponsors may be acknowledged in CCS, the conference program, on our website, and in printed materials. For more information on becoming a corporate sponsor, please contact Jessica Sawko at . Many different opportunities exist to meet your budget and your needs.
