Explore the Universe that God created and investigate how it all works perfectly together to create the world we live in. This course moves the student from the lithosphere of the earth itself, to the hydrosphere in and on the earth, to the atmosphere surrounding the earth, and finally out into space visiting the solar system and the rest of the universe. All of this is a quest to understand God’s created world.
