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.

July TERF Day 1

Even though we were sad to see the June TERFers go, we're so exited to have the group of July TERFers join us! It's a small group, but the four of them worked together to conquer the Tour de Tyson Challenge with no trouble.

Ready to learn about Tyson and TERF!

What is this white thing? It's an observatory! Learning about the observatory and why it is here is stop #5 on the Tour de Tyson Challenge.

We hope the July TERFers enjoy their time here!
