Middle School/High School

Teaching your earth and environmental science students about erosion, deposition, and the effects of bodies of water on land?

You could pack your bags and take a class trip to a river,  valley, or ocean - or, you could stay right where you are and use a landform simulator!

From rainfall and wave simulation to mountain peaks, volcanoes and meandering shorelines, landform simulators make it easy to model real-life topographic features and demonstrate the effects of weather, climate and water flow on the surrounding land and environment. 

In this video, we'll show you how to use a landform simulator in your classroom to study a variety of earth and environmental science topics, and how to choose the best options and features for your classroom and budget.
