The University of Colorado campus in Boulder offers a unique opportunity to explore a variety of scientific topics in an outdoor laboratory. We will use our proximity to the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains to learn about the geologic history of the region, the flora and fauna that inhabit it, and a variety of other Earth science topics. In addition, this area provides a plethora of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors including rock climbing, water sports, hiking, mountain biking, and much more. This class is intended to both expose students to a variety of different fields of scientific inquiry and also give them the freedom to explore and learn more about questions they personally find interesting. Students will have the opportunity to conduct lab and field work, and participate in the best the Rocky Mountains has to offer. Topics covered may include geologic history, formation of the Rocky Mountains, orienteering, meteorology, soil science, and ecology. The emphasis will be on using a place-based approach as a means for understanding the interconnections among various aspects of the natural world.
