Frontier Science School

The Frontier Science School is the facet of Grand Staircase Partners through which we develop curricula, implement programs, and facilitate educator professional development to connect students, teachers, and people of all ages with the monument’s impressive scientific, historical, and cultural resources.
Lessons and activities that center around monument science connect learners with an incredible real-world laboratory, creating opportunities to build knowledge about the Grand Staircase while developing skills around data collection, data analysis, and critical thinking.
These inquiry-based programs reflect a commitment to supporting rural education through capacity building and through providing educational and financial resources.
In the process, FSS strives to spark and foster curiosity about the monument, public lands, and the scientific fields engaged in exploring these spaces.
