Deadly Science - Earth's Changing Surfaces
From deep inside the earth's core to what happens on a Sydney beach, this is a fascinating look at the constant changes that are happening to the surfaces of our planet.
The Deadly Science series presents a mix of western and first nations Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics [STEM] knowledge in informative, excitingly illustrated science texts
Earth's Changing Surfaces (Book 4 in the series) steps primary-aged learners through:
- What is happening deep beneath the earth's crust
- The formation, shifts and movements of supercontinents
- Igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks
- The geology of our own backyard here in Australia
- How soil is formed
- The fascinating science of volcanoes
- Why we have droughts floods fires and tsunamis
- Deforestation and its impacts
It also looks at a hands on experiment undertaken by the students of the Redfern Jarjum College to understand the power of the tides and coastline changes
The Deadly Science series aims to inspire the next generation of Deadly Scientists one book at a time.
Understanding that regional and remote schools were critically underfunded, particularly in STEM resources, proud Kamilaroi educator, Corey Tutt, worked 2 jobs to purchase and send resources to some of these schools. In 2018 Corey founded DeadlyScience, a not-for-profit organisation to provide STEM resources and learning experiences to regional and remote schools in Australia and connect young Indigenous people with STEM professionals.
Since then DeadlyScience has grown to be Australia’s leading Indigenous STEM charity working with over 800 schools and community organisations across all states and territories.
