Soil Habitats – Tuesday, December 3
This week we study the foundation of most environments by studying different types of
soils and rocks, determining the composition of soils and what lives in them, as well as
conduct an experiment to compare the water retention abilities of different soil types.
Throughout this semester, students study environmental processes and ecological systems through hands-on activities and experimentation related to the study of organisms and their environment. We explore biodiversity across the plant and animal kingdoms, learn methods to study diversity and behavior, investigate adaptations allowing organisms to thrive in their habitat, and look into abiotic factors influencing ecosystems. All lab costs are included in registration fee. Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
