  • 2015-16 Seed Grants Applications: The Huntsville Association of Technical Societies (The Association, previously known as HATS) and its Science and Technology EDucation and TRAINing (STEDTRAIN) Committee are pleased to announce the continuation of its Seed Grant Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Program for K-12 schools in Jackson, Madison, Marshall, Morgan, and Limestone Counties in Alabama and Lincoln County in Tennessee for the 2015-2016 school year.

    For the 2015-2016 school year, the STEDTRAIN Program is expanded to include a new and more challenging class of grants that may qualify for awards of $1500 to $2500, Enhanced Seed Grant. The program also retains the original range of $200 to $1000. A teacher may apply for one or both, but only one of the two classes of grants will be awarded to a successful applicant. Any teacher in public or private schools within our area counties may apply for a Seed Grant.

    The deadline for submitting proposals has passed. Over 40 proposals have been submitted for evaluation. The STEDTRAIN Committee will begin evaluating those proposals soon, and we expect to have the results by the first week in August. Teachers will be notified via email, and the results will be posted on this website. Thanks to all the teachers who submitted proposals. We appreciate your efforts to bring STEM into the classroom.

  • The Huntsville Association of Technical Societies is phasing out the acronym HATS after 44-years.  The acronym will be replaced with the short name, "The Association". This change will not affect the legal name of the organization, which will continue to be the Huntsville Association of Technical Societies.
