Earth Science 1: From the Surface to the Core (first semester)
You walk around on the surface of the earth every day, but how well do you know it? From rocks and minerals to earthquakes and volcanoes to fresh water and salt water, we have an amazing planet. In Earth Science 1, you will gain a deeper understanding of the processes that are constantly at work to change the surface of the earth. You will learn about the layers below the surface as well as the soil and water that form Earth’s crust.
Earth Science 2: From the Surface to the Sky (second semester)
You walk around on the surface of the earth every day, but how well do you know it? You look at the blue sky during the day and the star-filled sky at night, but do you know what’s out there? Join me in this semester long course, where we’ll discuss these topics and more! We’ll start on the surface of the earth and work our way out through the earth’s atmosphere, talking about the causes of weather. We will burst through the exosphere (the outermost layer of the atmosphere) and zoom off into space, where we will discover planets, moons, asteroids, stars and galaxies. By the time you return to Earth, you’ll have a much better understanding of Earth – from the surface to the sky!
