Class Description

This class is both fun and informative. Students will learn about:

  • meteorology
  • physics
  • earth science
  • geology
  • Students will make a seismograph and measure a lab created earthquake, make a weather station, work with lasers, create a weather warning system, make and use a radar detector and build a DOPLER wind sheer detection system. Students will learn to chemically test rock samples to determine what the rock is made of and will use medical grade microscopes to also make rock identifications.This is a hands-on class with safety rules.
