Hands-On Geology

Picture the past, forecast the future

The Earth system has experienced dramatic changes over its 4.6-billion-year history. Understanding the causes of these changes, and their effect on past climate, geography, and life, allows us to predict the impact of events happening on our planet today.

This project will introduce you to a range of tools that geologists use to understand Earth’s past and plan for the future. We will spend time both in the field and in the lab exploring local evidence of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, climate change, and evolution.

Dive into deep time with us and gain a new perspective on the world around you.
