About the course

"Key ingredients in the ecosystem - water, carbon, nitrogen - are recycled and reused every day. Explore the building blocks of life, the importance of bacteria, and reacquaint yourself with the changing states of matter.

Break down the key elements of an ecosystem and look deeper into how these features interact and evolve over time."
