Geologists often use scale models to understand the behavior of physical things. Create a table top experiment that demonstrates a geological event taking place using a simple white plastic deep paint tray liner, regular play sand, and water. Position the pouring of the water entering the tray and create sandbars and channels for your model river. This project solves a Challenge for the Geologist Skill.
High on a cliff or deep in a cave, Geologists hunt for secrets locked in the Earth’s crust. Rocks and minerals provide clues to Earth’s mysterious past and potential future. Whether it’s cracking open a geode or analyzing ancient climate changes, a Geologist finds the incredible in the ordinary.
