Virtual field trips are unique experiences for teachers and students engage in science from a different perspective. These field trips will provide a standards-based lesson which will allow students to develop an understanding of the content and do a hands-on experiment. An experienced GYSTC instructor will present the lesson via Zoom. Each activity will incorporate STEM careers related to the topic. Consumable supplies will be provided for all students.

If the class you are looking for is unavailable please look at our additional Virtual In-Class Field Trips here.

Earth's Surface - Erosion and Deposition (S6E5d, e)

9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Students will build an erosion table using aluminum basting trays and will use them to experiment with different soil types and landscape elements that can be effected by water erosion. The students will create various landscape settings and see how different volumes and rates of water will erode the landscapes. The students will be able to apply their erosion table studies to actual construction site situations.
