Getting Started in Trig-Star

Want to get involved with Trig-Star but don't know where to start? Check out this information packet which also contains sample questions. The NSPS Trig-Star website has a lot of program information and useful resources. And of course the Trig-Star Committee can also assist and maybe even help connect you to someone locally who's already doing Trig-Star.
