This residential program for 10-12th graders offered by Teton Science Schools focuses on science immersion in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This flagship course includes front-country camping overnights in Yellowstone National Park and a backpacking trip in Grand Teton National Park. Students conduct their own inquiry-based field research projects and present their findings to peers, faculty, TSS community members, and Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem land managers.
With over three million acres of wilderness out your backdoor, beautiful wildlife and majestic views will be enjoyed every day. Teton Science Schools' mission is to connect people, nature and place through education, science and stewardship. TSS is an organization in northwest Wyoming comprised of seven program areas sharing a common vision of education. We have been teaching about the natural world and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem since 1967.
TSS is deeply rooted in the outdoors as place anchors and enriches our understanding of the world. Our organization has educated, trained and inspired thousands of children, youth and adults, bringing them together through the study of nature and place-based education. We serve students from across Wyoming, the Intermountain West, the nation and around the world.
