We are currently recruiting 10th graders for participation in SIFT Cohort 3 for 2010-11. We have funding for 60 students!
The application is located on the front page of the Shaw Nature Reserve website.
The application deadline has been extended to April 16th to accommodate as many applicants as possible.
This educational collaboration between Washington University's Tyson Research Center and the Missouri Botanical Garden's Shaw Nature Reserve is designed to engage St. Louis area high school students in scientifically-based exploration of the natural world. Linked programs of field training (SIFT) and field research (TERF) provide teenagers with experiences that realistically reflect research in environmental biology. Participating teens learn a variety of field investigation skills and then have the opportunity to put those new skills to work assisting career scientists with real research projects.
