Teton Science Schools

Educating for a Vibrant World

The Teton Science Schools' Educational Research Program directly informs both Teton Science Schools (TSS) programs and broader educational field on the impacts of place-based education. Specifically, the program tests the three major hypotheses of our programs: 1) Increased student and teacher engagement, 2) increased learner outcomes, 3) increased impact and understanding of place.

The Educational Research Program partners with universities to conduct on-site and distance research with funding through joint grants. If you are interested in partnering on a grant or a research project, please contact kevin.krasnow@tetonscience.org.

The Program periodically releases Research Briefs highlighting research conducted within one of our programs.
