  • Fostering Pride for Place through Hands-to-Work

    Hands-to-work is yet another way we plant the seeds of social responsibility in our students, an ethic that they can take with them wherever they go once they leave Teton Science Schools. From Field Education participants who may have only been on campus for a few days, to directors who have been with TSS for over a decade, we all form part of one unified community bound by a thread of stewardship.

  • Five Months until Totality!

    Editor’s Note: On August 21st, 2017, the United States will experience its first total solar eclipse in 38 years. Jackson, WY happens to be in an ideal location to view the eclipse, and we’re already counting down the days. Field Education will be welcoming adult and family participants with our partner TravelQuest for a week of exploration in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks surrounding the eclipse. Figuring out the science behind total solar eclipses has been an education for all of us, so we’re excited to bring you an expert on the topic. Thanks to Dr. Samuel Singer, of Wyoming Stargazing, a good friend of TSS, for his eclipse support, staff training, and blog!
