In this class we will take a trip through geological time, from the formation of the Earth until the present day. We will examine the main events of each geological era and period. We will look at how the history of the Earth is divided by mass extinctions, abrupt climatic change and other factors. We will also examine how the age of rocks are investigated using techniques such as radioactive dating and index fossils. Join Laura to go through the ages and immerse yourself into the Geology of each era.

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for students of both Geology and Science who want to understand more about Geologic time.
