To discover and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of this course students will be know in depth details of most Earth Science curriculums.
I have a BSc in Geology and an MSc in Geophysics and have chosen the most interesting and exciting subjects to teach to get young minds fascinated by Earth Sciences. I also have a PhD in Philosophy. I have been teaching on Outschool for over 2 years and have taught at University level previously.

Some classes talks about Global Warming and Climate Change causing more frequent natural disasters. It also talks about mass extinctions including the possibility of humans causing one now (including ourselves) and has some drawn images of animals dying to become fossils. It is delivered in a upbeat manner with positive solutions (eg: switching to renewable energy), but the more sensitive students may find these topics distressing.
Google Forms will be used for the multichoice questions optional homework
