The Big Bend/Leon Association for Science Teaching (BLAST) is a subsidiary organization to the Tallahassee Scientific Society. This special group of science educators seeks to establish lines of communication among all persons involved in science education in the North Florida community to foster life-long interest in the sciences, to foster increased knowledge and skill of science teachers, to coordinate curricula and services most conducive to outstanding science education in Leon County, and to provide monetary support for special science teacher and student projects. BLAST is also affiliated with the Florida Association of Science Teachers.
