In this fun-filled class, students will explore the wonderful world of waves. The class will include science experiments, hands-on activities, and arts and crafts. Students will discover the science of waves, currents, and tsunamis. They will explore how light travels and which color of light travels the farthest. We will investigate how sand is formed by waves, and we will use microscopes to examine sand from beaches around the world. Each student will design and create a miniature surfboard from balsa wood to take home.
