What is the physics of earth and space all about? 

Have you ever wondered why earthquakes occur? How volcanoes come to life? What a million year old fossil can tell us?  Where the Earth came from? And at night when you look into the sky at the vast galaxies in our universe do you wonder - how did it all begin? Are we alone? These and many other questions will be explored in Earth Science through hands-on activities. We will explore the underlying physical phenomena that govern what we see, hear, and feel.  We'll use all our skills finally in a geological field trip to Block Island, our gift from the glaciers!
