Earth, Space Sciences and Physics  (ESP 314)
July 1 - 14, 2024

EPSP 314 is a 2-week course that provides research-lab environment  to learn and apply principles of Earth sciences, systems, physics, and space. Become immersed in 4 labs and classroom experiments that challenge conventional thinking. Design & propose experiments on ISS and grant proposals. ESPS welcomes  STEM educators, undergraduates, graduates, and working professionals to better characterize, understand, and model materials, macro/micro systems in various environments on Earth and how it relates to other planets.

Research Projects  and Labs

Design your own research project throughout ESP course based on coursework, labs, and

hypothesis driven findings with final class project and case study report. 4 at home/outdoor science experiments  that challenge conventional thinking.   Design & propose experiments on ISS and space. Write up reports to relate and apply findings on Electron and Atomic reactions. Connect the dots to how research relates to Earth Science, Physics, and sustainability.
