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.

June TERFers wrap up as the July session gets underway

We closed out our amazing June TERF session last week with lunch on the lookout. TERFers discussed how they overcame challenges and grew individually over the past month. On Monday we welcomed our July TERFers. They learned how to be a TERFer at Tyson then set out on their Tour de Tyson Challenge!

Enjoying lunch with a view!
