Temple University’s College of Science and Technology (CST) and STEM Ed Network is proud to introduce FunScience Productions, the interactive program focused on providing free high-quality science lessons. Every episode brings a series of engaging demonstrations that enlighten students and teachers about the world around them in a fascinating way. The demonstrations are available in a broad range of topics including earth and space science, physical science, life science and, engineering practices. FunScience Productions highly benefits from FunScience Demos, founded by Dr. George Mehler, Assistant Professor CST with the support of ASM & CST. FunScience Productions also delivers episodes under the direction of Dr. Susan Jansen Varnum, Senior Associate Dean CST and Professor of Chemistry; and Surya Prayaga, a current Master’s degree student in Information Science & Technology with co-stars from the STEM-Ed Network and TUteach program.
The big idea behind this episode is geology, which can be defined as the study of the Earth and how it changes over time. Emily shows us what’s inside the Earth, and Susan demonstrates the difference between fossil and rock, as well as how fossils help us understand life on Earth thousands of years ago.
