We all know geology rocks, and now you can see why! This marbleous course will have you on field trips, and doing activities, and experiments to help you understand and appreciate the complexities of planet Earth. You will dig up answers to questions like: “what can bones and fossils tell us about the lives of animals?”, “What causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions?” and “How can we identify minerals and rocks?”. This week will also include guided tours of the Canadian Museum of Nature’s Fossil and Mineral Galleries, and an outdoor field trip to Hogs Back Falls.
