To many people, soil is nothing more than "dirt" on which roads and buildings are constructed or in which crops grow. This six-week class seeks to introduce students to the various biological, geological, environmental, and engineering aspects of soil to show how complex of a substance soil really is.

In addition to two degrees, I also have both teaching experience and professional experience in the field of geology. Geology has been a passion of mine for many years and I enjoy sharing what I have learned with others and open their eyes to the world of geology.
Students will be given assignments at the end of each class to test their knowledge of the subject material. In addition, discussion boards will be posted to the classroom page to further enhance student engagement with each other as well as the instructor.
All assignments will be provided by instructor. For a hands-on activity, students will need a plastic bottle (e.g. plastic water bottle), small spade, shovel, or other device to dig soil, and a funnel.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
