WHO

Gifted and talented, rising juniors and seniors from Tennessee high schools.

WHAT

The best four weeks of your life!  As usual, the students in the 2018 Governor's School for the Scientific Exploration of Tennessee Heritage will have the opportunity to explore the uniqueness of Tennessee through science and history, but for the summer of 2018 students will enroll in the college-level course, HIST 2030: History of Tennessee.

We'll continue to offer field experiences in Paleontology, Natural History, and Pioneer Experience.  Field trips will include the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, Roan Mountain, Rocky Mount Living History Museum, and Jonesborough, Tennessee.  And it wouldn't be GSSETH without contra dancing, jam sessions, and flint knapping!

WHEN

Dates for the 2018 program are June 3 through June 29, 2018. Applications are available online at www.tn.gov/education/topic/tdoe-governors-school or click on the link above. Deadline for submission of application is December 1, 2017.  Check the Tennessee Department of Education website or talk to your guidance counselor for additional information and deadlines.
