Investigating Earth Systems approaches Earth System Science through problem-solving, with community-based models that are hands-on and inquiry-driven. Students will investigate: where deposits of minerals can be found, how deposits form, how minerals are mined, what responsibilities you have in maging these resources, and the importance of minerals as a natural resource for producing materials.
