WAVE SCIENCE

DATE: APRIL 22 - EARTH DAY
TIME: 9-11 AM 
AGES: ALL but children should be accompanied

Ever wonder how to tell the difference between windswell and  groundswell? Curious how a 'set' forms and what determines how many waves are in each set? Which waves are better to surf or swim in and why?
