Gifted and talented, rising juniors and seniors from Tennessee high schools.
The best four weeks of your life! Changes are coming to the 2017 Governor's School for the Scientific Exploration of Tennessee Heritage! As usual, students will have the opportunity to explore the uniqueness of Tennessee through science and history, but for the summer of 2017 students will enroll in the college-level course, HIST 2030: History of Tennessee.
We'll continue to offer field experiences in Paleontology and the 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!
Dates for the 2017 program are June 4 through June 30, 2017. Applications should be available online at the beginning of September. Check the Tennessee Department of Education website or talk to your guidance counselor for additional information and deadlines.
