Earth Science

Earth Science lets students discover the workings of the physical setting of the earth. In that sense it is not such much science in the traditional way that we think of it. Here, students cover areas such as:

  • Geology
  • Astronomy
  • Meteorology
  • Oceanography

While this is a challenging part of the Science Regents, it can be very interesting. Students study and learn about, clouds, stars, waves, rocks and more. So why not start compiling that information today using ExamTime like this user has.
