The group enjoyed getting to know one another and getting acquainted with the program.
|The group formed a circle and got to know each other|
We then brainstormed group, personal and museum goals as a further introduction to EnergyNet.
The teens also were introduced to the main topic of EnergyNet this year: Soil! Rob, a geology PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh that works with this program taught the teens about soil.
|Rob explaining what soil is and the difference between soil and dirt|
The teens then got to make a "soil column" out of candy and other fun foods.
We had a lot of fun working with the teens today and are looking forward to the rest of the semester!
