    • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
    • Voyagers

    This program will cover earth science, including paleontology, geological history, oceans, atmosphere, weather, and climate change. Each week we will focus primarily on hands-on lab activities using high-quality microscopes, a variety of real fossils from dinosaurs, mammoths, and other prehistoric animals and plants, environmental testing kits, weather stations, and other supplies. Prior science courses are not required--new students are very welcome to join.

    The spring 2018 semester of Earth Science will feature all-new material that was not covered in the fall 2017 semester, and that does not depend on any knowledge of that or other material. Students from the previous semester are encouraged to continue, and new students are very welcome to join us for this semester. Each session will have a short lecture summarizing the reading material but will mainly focus on hands-on lab activities involving that topic. 

    Syllabus

    This program is designed to provide laboratory experience and overview of fundamentals for individuals working at a range of levels. The level of learning will depend on the preparation of the individual and the amount of work the individual does at home. The recommended textbook is beautifully illustrated and very readable; it should be suitable for a broad range of ages. Parents are encouraged to review the textbook to determine whether this program will meet the child's needs. Please consult with Dr. Rider prior to registration if you have any questions.

    This program will cover the field of biology from its fundamental principles through cutting-edge synthetic biology and drug discovery.

    The spring 2018 semester of Biology will feature all-new material that was not covered in the fall 2017 semester, and that does not depend on any knowledge of that or other material.
