Description: 

Investigating Earth Systems approaches Earth System Science through problem-solving, with community-based models that are hands-on and inquiry-driven. Students will investigate: why some things become fossils and others don't, how the environment affects how fossils form, how fossils show the age of the earth, how life has changed over time, and what paleontologists do.
