Place-Based Symposium

Where Place-Based Ideas Come to Life

Teton Science Schools’ annual Place-Based Symposium was originally designed to celebrate the place-based work happening across the organization, bringing together our faculty, staff, AmeriCorps, students and regional community members to share and discuss best practices in local learning and global citizenship.

Since its establishment in 2015, the Place-Based Symposium has evolved into an annual event through which educators and thought leaders from around the world exchange place-based inspired ideas, learnings and aspirations.

Mark your calendars!

We are excited to host this year’s Place-Based Symposium virtually on April 22nd, 2022 from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m. MST

Registration will open on February 14, 2022. 

Keynote speaker information coming soon!

The Presentations

There are two types of presentations that you’ll have an opportunity to attend at this year’s Symposium: Individual presentations and Pecha Kucha. Also, be sure to check out our Pre-Symposium Poster Session from April 18-22!

Coming Soon: View Posters & Presentations





Individual Presentations:

Individual presentations are 15 minutes long and will be broken into one of the Symposium’s four annual themes. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend any session they like, regardless of the theme or “track”.

Pecha Kucha:

For the second hour of the Symposium, everyone will join together for a series of Pecha Kucha presentations. Pecha Kucha presentations are 15 slides long with 20 seconds of commentary on each slide (so, roughly five minute presentations). They’re fast and fun!
