    On a chilly night at the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools, a room of motivated young leaders from around the country sat captivated by a brick. The brick lay in the hands of Grand Teton National Park Superintendent David Vela, who walked from participant to participant, imploring them to make a physical connection with the weathered stone.
