Landforms: Evidence of a Changing Earth

Grade Level: Middle and High School
Science Content Standard: 7.3; Dynamic Earth Processes

Description: Using museum specimens and exhibits, Landforms will explore constructive and destructive geologic forces and the evidence of these activities in Connecticut, including tectonic movement, volcanism, glaciation, erosion and weathering.  With interactive experiences and a seismic monitor that keeps track of new quakes hourly, we bring the concept of a dynamic earth to life.
