Middle School Earth Science  

Instructor: Kira Wampler

PRICE: $500 per semester.  This is a year-long course. 

The class will meet with both in-person and live, via Zoom simultaneously.

Our topics will include Astronomy (study of outer space), Geology (study of rocks, earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate tectonics), Meteorology (study of the atmosphere, climate, and climate change), Ecology, Environmental science, and Oceanography (study of the oceans and water systems). This course will use hands-on experimentation, activities, and direct instruction. You will be enabled to learn the ‘how’ and ‘why’, not just the ‘what’ of science. I will show how Earth Science is relevant in your everyday life; you must provide the willingness to learn!
