For those of you not familiar with Casper Mountain Science School – CMSS is administered by Casper College in partnership with Natrona Couny School District #1 (NCSD) and the University of Wyoming Casper College Center (UW / CC Center).  The program provides enrichment to upper elementary and junior high students and Casper College and UW / CC students.  During the school year, approximately 30 NCSD students weekly will spend 4 days on Casper Mountain at Camp Sacajawea.  They will be taught the ecology of central Wyoming through a mixture of hands-on activities, explorations, and service learning projects.  College students will serve as assistant field instructors, learning how to teach science outdoors.  Evert Brown of Casper College is the director of the program; Carolyn Jacobs is the NCSD contact. 
 
CMSS Mission Statement:
To provide students the opportunity to learn outdoors, to increase their knowledge of science, to find delight in nature, and to reflect on their place in the world.
