Exploration Hannon is a mountain geology and ecology field study program designed around the processes and skills of scientific inquiry.
Mountain Geology & Ecology
Mountain geology and ecology involves studying the formation of the Appalachian Mountains, plate tectonics, plant and animal interactions, terrestrial ecosystems, and the impact of natural processes and human activities on Earth's landforms.
Stream mapping involves identifying water features in mountain streams, measuring the speed and flow of the river through experiments and data collection, and constructing model boats for racing based on gathered evidence and observations.
Aquatic ecology involves scientific investigations in mountain streams, testing water quality, and exploring biotic and abiotic factors in the ecosystem.
