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.

Cohort 2 is in the house!
You never know who is going to show up at Tyson on a summer Thursday evening! Max dropped in to see how Jessica is handling being the TERF undergraduate intern, and what Alex and Taylor are up to in the experimental prairie. Or he just really misses the bison burgers!
