Erosion Experiment

Driven to understand the forces shaping our planet, Mr. LeQue's students embarked on a mission to limit the erosion wreaking havoc in their miniature ecosystems.

Each drop held the potential to reshape the landscape, carving gullies and washing away precious soil. To combat this, the students delved into the fascinating world of earth science, uncovering the secrets of sedimentation, deposition, and compaction. They learned how different materials, like sand, gravel, and vegetation, could influence the flow of water, preventing the destructive erosion they aimed to control.

The "Erosion Control" experiment allowed students to observe the impact of their actions, the gain a deeper appreciation for the delicate balance of natural systems and the importance of sustainable practices.
