  • Celebration of Learning

    For TSS graduate students’ final assignment of the year, they are tasked with synthesizing all that they learned, experienced, and came to understand from the year into a final product. Some create written pieces and some create artistic pieces. As we celebrate the graduation of TSS’s 22nd graduate class, we’ll publish two of these culminating pieces on the blog this week. Today, we feature Sam Neirman’s poem, which he used to capture the feelings and experiences of this past year. He read the poem at a reception for all graduate students and their guests during Graduation Week.

  • Legend: Map of the Known Universe

    For TSS graduate students’ final assignment of the year, they are tasked with synthesizing all that they learned, experienced, and came to understand from the year into a final product. Some create written pieces and some create artistic pieces. As we celebrate the graduation of TSS’s 22nd graduate class, we’ll publish two of these culminating pieces on the blog this week. First, we have Nicole Gautier’s key or legend to a map of her experiences from the year, which celebrates some of her greatest and most challenging teaching moments as well as an important wildlife encounter.

  • Layers of Learning

    The layers of learning at Teton Science Schools are as complex and beautiful as the rock layers depicted on the geological maps of Jackson Hole. These layers of learning are the fabric of the TSS experience and a catalyst to the multiplier effect of the TSS mission.
