Why This Class
Keeping your student focused in an area like STEM can be a challenge—if they can’t see the fun or personal relevance behind a scientific concept, their attention can easily drift elsewhere. This course focuses on one of the coolest scientific topics of all: our planet Earth! Students will learn to connect how atoms and energy interact to create Earth systems, and consequently, the complexities of the Earth around us.
Through hands-on projects, mentors help the students discover how the smallest, most basic components of our universe can combine to create complexities that are not yet understood. Students will also get a chance to explore the lost language of math, and use the beautiful simplicity of basic mathematical equations to both better understand and describe the world we all live in.
