Grace Kieft grew up in Denver, Colorado, and has always had an interest in the way things work. She attended The Odyssey School of Denver for elementary and middle school, and will be a junior at Denver East High School this upcoming school year. Grace is very excited to be a part of the Teen Science Scholars program because she is interested in learning about how scientists conduct research and use it to learn more about the world. She is also part of her school’s cross country team, sings in a choir, and is on the Lincoln Douglas debate team at her high school. She has one younger brother as well as a cat and a bearded dragon. This summer, Grace is looking forward to meeting new people and learn about why each of the many research collaborators chose to come to Marmath, ND to conduct their field work.
