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.

TERF Winter Symposium

On Saturday, January 28, 2011, the TERFers hosted their own symposium at Tyson Research Center from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the Living Learning Center.  There were six posters, four slide presentations, and a video project presented to an audience of close to 100 people.

The TERFers explained their work on Tyson-based research projects to family, friends, participants in the SIFT program, and interested community members.
Garima gave a personal reflection on her summer internship experience.
Another amazing TERF cake from the Kanak family!
A happy bunch after the big event was over.
