Become part of a historic legacy by joining the program that started Teton Science Schools in 1967! Immerse yourself in the study of the natural sciences in one of the most beautiful and ecologically complex wilderness areas in North America. Alongside knowledgeable instructors you will sharpen your analytical thinking and scientific skills then conduct field-research projects through hands-on exploration of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park. Your experience culminates with a backpacking trip in Jackson Hole. The program and lodging is based at the Kelly Campus in Grand Teton National Park along with 5 nights frontcountry camping and 4 nights backcountry camping. High school credit is available. 26 days, 25 nights.

What will I be doing each week?
The course will begin at the Kelly campus getting to know each other. We will conduct small investigations that introduce the landscape and allow us to practice the skills of a naturalist and scientist. Throughout the second week, we will travel around Yellowstone to experience the landscape of a supervolcano. We will compare patterns observed during the first week to new landscapes. During the third week, student groups will propose, design, implement, and present a scientific research project, implementing the learning and skills acquired. The experience will end with a backcountry trip during the fourth week where we further explore the Tetons and reflect upon learnings from the summer.
