CalTAC: The California Teacher Advisory Council

CalTAC was formed in 2005 as a means for bringing real world classroom experience - the wisdom of practice - to policy makers and others whose decisions affect the quality of science and math education in California schools. Made up of a carefully selected group of award winning, highly accomplished teachers from across the state, CalTAC has been working to provide greater opportunities for students to engage in the STEM disciplines as well as to improve their academic performance.

CCST S&T Policy Fellows: Science and Technology Informing Policy

In 2009, CCST launched a program to embed scientists directly in the California state legislature. Ten young PhDs scientists were awarded fellowships in a variety of committee and legislator offices in Sacramento. Five years later, this pilot program has been declared a success and extended. Our Fellows are in high demand in Sacramento, and their contributions have been praised year after year on the floor of the California Assembly and Senate.
