BOZEMAN – Montana State University's Extended University is partnering with Montana Outdoor Science School to offer a new continuing education course called Adventures in Outdoor Science.

The course is designed to help adults design and incorporate outdoor science field experiences for youth into their programs. The course is ideal for outdoor educators, teachers, camp counselors, summer youth program coordinators, museum professionals and others interested in outdoor education. Participants who complete the course can earn Office of Public Instruction renewal units or Continuing Education Units.

The majority of coursework takes place online. Two Saturday field experiences will be held on April 12 and 26 in Bozeman. The course runs from April 7 through May 2 and is $165. Discounts are available for members of the Downtown Bozeman Association, the Prospera Business Network and the Big Sky and Livingston chambers of commerce.

The instructor is Amanda Obery of the Montana Outdoor Science School. Obery received her bachelor's degree in molecular genetics, her master's in education with specializations in science, and taught high school biology and chemistry for three years. She is the education coordinator for the Montana Outdoor Science School.
