Presenter: Amy Lorenz, Teacher Learning Center Faculty and Curriculum Specialist, Teton Science Schools

Amy taught experiential science in southern California and spent summers studying and teaching marine mammal ecology in the Canadian Maritimes before attending the TSS Graduate Program. Her masters research focused on the influence of citizen science on student attitudes, understanding of science practices, and sense of place. Before returning to the Tetons, she spent three years in Cambridge, MA with the Encyclopedia of Life project where she developed place-based biodiversity curriculum, led schoolyard bio-blitzes, and coordinated community science projects. She splits her time between Jackson Hole and the Bay of Fundy where she directs a marine science summer program.
