Teton Science School

"Children should be inventors of their own theories, critics of others' ideas, analyzers of evidence, and makers of their own personal marks on this most complex world." - Deborah Miller, legendary inner-city principal

Fifth graders from Edith Bowen have attended Teton Science School since the spring of 1990--a tradition that spans more than three decades and is an integral part of the Edith Bowen Laboratory School experience.  Teton Science School engages students in real field-based science, fosters relationships, builds community, and provides leadership skills for our students--all of which pay dividends both in the classroom and life.  Our fourth grade overnighter to Swanson's North Fork Environmental Center each spring helps prepare students and parents for the Teton Science School, and the Teton Science School expereince helps prepare students for the sixth grade five-day San Juan River/Canyon Country Discovery Center experience.
