An outreach program for Rice EEPS students to bring awareness, knowledge, and conversations about earth, environmental and planetary sciences to the public.

Discovering Plate Boundaries

Discovering Plate Boundaries is a data-rich exercise to help students discover the processes that occur at plate tectonic boundaries. Designed for use with students from 5th grade to Earth Science Majors at Rice University, DPB works well over this range of student level. It requires students to observe and classify data. It does not require prior knowledge of plate tectonics.
