Tide-O-Matic - FUSE
July 19 from 4:00pm to 5:00pm
In most places on the Earth where the ocean meets the land, there are two high tides and two low tides each day. In this program, students learn the equilibrium theory of tides — why there are four each day, why the heights of the tides change over the course of a month, and why the tides occur about an hour later each day. Participants will also build a simple model to explore the influence of the sun and moon on our tides.
