Since 1976, Keystone Science School has taught scientific principles and leadership skills to young people, teachers, and community members through engaging hands-on field experiences. Formerly part of The Keystone Center, a nonprofit public policy and educational organization, KSS was founded on the belief that leaders should approach decision-making with a healthy respect for scientific inquiry, collaboration, and civic engagement. Our programs prepare future leaders to address the increasingly complex issues our society faces. Check out our values - they define KSS's culture and help guide the staff when making decisions.
