We educate through science in action


At Tyson, we fully integrate our educational programming within our research activities. We provide enthusiastic pre-college and undergraduate students with hands-on research experience in the natural and environmental sciences. The resources of Tyson Research Center are also available to educators at other regional colleges and universities.

“I learned more about team dynamics in a work setting. Also I learned about the methods behind many ecological research projects; both those being done at Tyson, and the others through reading papers and listening to seminars.”

Former Tyson Undergraduate Fellow

Become a part of the Tyson community


Something that has become common at Tyson is the return of our young people. Undergraduate fellows participate for multiple summers and high schoolers return as undergraduates. Many often come back for our weekly summer seminar and dinner. The identity as a member of the Tyson community exerts a strong pull and provides for continuing networking and career preparation.
