No matter the time of year you need a getaway, the four-seasons location of Telluride is the perfect place. From winter activities like skiing and romantic sleigh rides to warm-weather activities like hiking and mountain biking, there’s something for everyone to fill the time. If you also have some molecular science buffs in your crew, consider learning more from the Telluride Science Research Center.
TSRC plays host to many scientists – those who come for a short period, and those who stay as part of the “scientist in residence” program. TSRC Telluride is staffed by over 1,300 scientists annually from 92 countries of origin and 535 international research and academic institutions. They bring all of this varied knowledge and experience to one place in Telluride and deliver it to the public through Pinheads Institute as well as Telluride Academy summer programs, and through other lectures and events held throughout the year.
Summer Lecture Series
Every summer the TSRC presents a lecture series. Experts in their field have spoken about the use of AI in drug design, COVID-19, quantum dynamics, and panel discussions of various topics have shed light on some of the most current ideas on topics challenging the modern scientific world. Keep in mind pandemic conditions may take the series online, where you can watch from the comfort of your accommodations.
For years, TSRC Telluride has rented space in Telluride Intermediate School, but the purchase of the town’s historic Depot gives the center a permanent home. TSRC plans to restore the iconic structure while also making room for new programming, public events like talks, weekend seminars, and interactions with the scientists. The Depot is currently in use as an interim clinic of the Telluride Medical Center, but once the clinic vacates, plans for the renovation will begin.
Taking Care of Telluride
Scientific exploration doesn’t stop when the school bell rings for the final time. Telluride Science Research Center does its best to make sure the newest breakthroughs in molecular science and nanotechnology are delivered to Telluride. When you make the TSRC a part of your vacation plans, make sure you also make booking a vacation rental provided by Vacation Telluride part of your plans. We have cozy one-bedroom units available, all the way up to five-bedroom units. Spend some time outdoors in private outdoor patios and balconies. After a long day activity and science, prepare a home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen, then stretch out and relax in an open living area with friends and family or retreat to a private bedroom.
