Have you ever noticed that the continents seem to fit together like a puzzle? This data and more led to the theory of plate tectonics. Let’s build a clay model, and then expand it to explain how earthquakes, volcanoes, rock formations, and magnetism all fit together.
“Plate Detective” is a tool that enables students to compile scientific data from sea floor topography, volcano distributions, earthquake distributions, sea floor age, and magnetic patterns to create a model of plate boundaries.
Dance of the Continents is an original Broadway-style show developed by students, faculty and staff at TCU.
The show follows the story of the development of the theory of plate tectonics featuring Alfred Wegener and Harry Hess.
