The Science and Society project was developed to enhance the communication and leadership skills of graduate scientists while increasing science education by infusing locally relevant, current environmental science research into K-12 classrooms. Graduate student Fellows represented a broad range of disciplines focused on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem including plant ecology, geo-microbiology, snow science and civil engineering, thermal microbiology, historical geography, and hydrology. The Fellows partnered with local 4th-8th grade Teachers to bring cutting-edge science into K-8 local rural schools, and the Wind River Native American reservation in Wyoming. The objective of all partnerships was to develop and implement thoughtful, interesting and relevant science lessons based on the Fellow’s research area.
