“Earth@Home: Your Toolkit for Learning About Earth and its 4.5-billion-year History” will be the topic of Science in the Virtual Pub at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8.

Presenters will be Drs. Don Haas, Jonathon Hendricks, Alexandra Moore and Robert Ross of The Paleontological Research Institution.

They will give a quick tour of Earth@Home followed by a discussion on how and why the resource was created and how it is likely to grow in the coming years.

Earth@Home, a new resource from PRI, is rich with free interactive content about Earth and its life, with a focus on geology, paleontology, climate and the connections of Earth’s different systems. Designed for anyone who wants to learn more about the history of the Earth and its life, Earth@Home provides opportunities to explore the geology right outside their door and around the world through Here on Earth, dig into an array of topics in the Digital Encyclopedia of Earth Science and participate in a range of investigations through Virtual Fieldwork, Virtual Labs, and Virtual Collections.
