  • 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!

  • Educating for the Ideal Student in Bhutan

    On the last day of our third place-based education workshop in Bhutan this past January, staff from the Royal Education Council were immersed in a flurry of sticky notes and passionate conversation. We had presented them with a real-world problem: In the past, winter snowfall and seasonal glacial melt has allowed Bhutan to generate hydropower for use in-country. But Bhutan has lost 20% of its glaciers in the last 20 years.
