University of Idaho Foundation

The University of Idaho McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS) connects students to peers, mentors, community leaders, and experts in an E-STEM initiative focusing on the context of Idaho’s land, water, and communities, using problem-based and inquiry-based approaches in small groups to solve complex real-world problems with innovative solutions.

MOSS demonstrates innovation with its focus on place-based expeditions, collaborative online environments, and integration of E-STEM along all grade levels. Inclusive of participants from the K-12 grade range all the way up to PhD faculty, the program has led to numerous peer-reviewed articles and demonstrated success in increasing student science identity and science process skills.
