Instructor: Collins

Self Paced Full Year Earth Science

In this course, we will tour Earth’s atmosphere and environment. Together we will learn about earth’s amazing landscapes, from deep tropical forests, hot deserts, cold glaciers, and everything in between. We will examine how climate always has changed and how humans are now in the process of completely transforming the earth’s future climate. After taking this course, you will have a better understanding of how the earth around you works, including why the weather is like it is where you live, why you see (or don’t see) mountain ranges from your window, or wake up in the middle of the night from earthquakes.
