The 10th grade Young Geoscientist Field Course will take the 2nd year experienced students from an ancient ocean in the Southwest Texas area to the recent Texas Gulf Coast. Students will get the opportunity to take the Port Aransas Ferry and visit the remarkable town of Port Aransas, Texas.
These rising 10th graders will get to learn about the impact of natural processes that affect the Texas Gulf Coast. These natural processes, such as wind, rivers, storms and changes in sea level, are brought to light by allowing students to immerse themselves in field work. Students will visit South Padre Island and Mustang Island. In addition to learning about geology, students will be able to learn about marine science by taking a boat ride and trolling for Gulf dwelling creatures, and visiting the Texas State Aquarium.
