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.

DANGER: TERFer posters under construction!

The TERFers gathered together for several Sunday afternoons in September and October to work on their posters for the upcoming WUSTL Fall 2013 Undergraduate Research Symposium. 

The Fire Ecology Team takes their posters very seriously!  Dr. Rae Crandall (center) always helps her TERFers learn how to create a strong research poster.

Research technician Maranda Walton (center) helps the four TERFers on the Forest Dynamics Team organize their research information into the proper sections of a scientific poster.

Research technician Erynn Maynard (l) guides TERFer Hannah Kruse through construction of a poster on their invasive plants research.
