Teton Science Schools Summer Youth Adventures



Utilizing the Grand Teton National Park as an outdoor classroom, Teton Science Schools offers summer programming in the natural sciences, natural history and conservation. Students entering grades 11 and 12 and high school graduates enroll in a four-week course that leads to high school credit in field ecology. Participants identify and investigate plants and animals, study natural communities and learn about the foundations of geology. A three-week course in natural field history serves boys and girls entering grades 9-11. For junior high schoolers entering grades 7-9, TSS conducts a 10-day field ecology course. Backpacking and canoeing are elements of all programs.
