Restless Earth - Plate Tectonics, Volcanoes, and Earthquakes

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(409)
In this three week course, we'll dive deep into the Earth's crust to learn about how volcanoes and earthquakes are formed. We'll model plate tectonics, experiment with lava from kitchen ingredients, and look at real time earthquake data.

Class experience

Students will identify the types of plate boundaries - convergent, divergent, and transform - and explain how each one leads to observable results on Earth's surface.
Students will create a map of earthquakes using scientific data.
Students will model low and high viscosity and describe how it can affect volcanic eruptions.
