Teaching Science Outdoors professional development program is a research and outreach collaboration between science educators, scientists and outreach professionals. Since 2014 the program has taken place at MSU's Kellogg Biological Station. TSO aims to help elementary school teachers teach science in authentic ways, using the Next Generation Science Standards as guidelines. TSO bridges traditional/formal/indoor learning environments with informal/outdoor learning environments, using the schoolyard as an intriguing place to observe and study phenomena.
