title Earth science
description <div><p>This wide-ranging on-screen module introduces a scientific study of the earth across the spectrum of scale ? from shifting continents to the microscopic; and time ? from the 4.5 billion year age of the earth to geological processes that happen in a flash. Your studies will include fossil life, erupting volcanoes, mountain building, and the record of earth's changing surface environments. The teaching materials will develop your practical skills using geological maps, microscopes, and many types of field data, alongside developing your general science and study skills. You'll also learn fieldwork skills via virtual field trips or the optional four-day residential field school (for which there is additional cost).</p></div>
