Mission Statement

Keystone Science School inspires curiosity and critical thinking through the lens of science to change lives and strengthen communities. We create future leaders who can problem solve and work together in an ever-evolving world and workplace environment.

Organization History

Founded in 1976 by Robert W. Craig, Keystone Science School has taught scientific principles and leadership skills to young people, teachers, and community members through engaging hands-on field experiences. Keystone Science School was founded on the belief that leaders should approach decision-making with a healthy respect for scientific inquiry, collaboration, and civic engagement.

We know that today's youth are our future leaders - the ones who will develop policies and make decisions that impact our world. With that in mind, we've created interactive science education programs that help students become familiar with scientific and critical thinking skills and encourage them to be engaged citizens.

Testimonials

"Keystone Science School has done a superb job aligning all curricula with state science standards and allowing student success to be measurable. Throughout the program, students have made enormous gains in their ability to communicate understanding of scientific topics as well as draw connections to their own experiences. I look forward to the opportunity to continue Lake County's partnership with Keystone Science School, and expand what has already proved to be a phenomenal initiative."
Daniel Rudolf, Teacher, Lake County Middle School

"The biggest lesson I learned was that kids can make changes in this world. We learned how to contribute to the pine beetle issue and issues in our own neighborhood. It was really fun, and I made a lot of friends - we were working together every second out there."
Logan Weinman, Summit Middle School, 7th grade student

"Bringing our 6th graders up to KSS to participate in the Pine Beetle experience [an Education in Action program] was definitely a wise choice. This program entailed real-life experiences and field exposure to the Pine Beetle dilemma in Summit County that would never be able to be brought to the classroom. Students were able to see first-hand how the Pine Beetle has devastated our national forests, yet also understand how this act of nature could be a positive feature to our trees. My students were definitely 'fired-up' to become more involved in their own community's environmental issues and take ownership of their future as Parker citizens."
Wendy Randazzo, Teacher, Parker Core Knowledge

"KSS is a fantastic resource for Summit County and all of Colorado, and deserves financial and volunteer support for the positive, meaningful impact it has on young people."
Cap and Suzy Witzler, Donors

"What I find most exciting about KSS is the extent to which children who attend the programs are impacted. Whether the children are at KSS for a night, three nights, or even a week, they leave with a valuable and memorable learning experience. By supporting KSS, I am investing in the critical thinking skills of future generations."
Doug Sims, Board Chair
