Stream Table, Ex-streamly Fun
We all wait in breathless anticipation for sand cliffs to collapse dramatically as the tiny river eats away at the sedement like acid (we're not as bored as we look, seriously, it was pretty ridiculous). The stream table is an interesting tool that geologists use to understand and view how rivers act over a long period of time (while being able to observe a few thousand years in less than an hour). Everyone was enraptured by it and cheered everytime something happened, but finally we all broke down into building our own rivers and cliffs (sort of like a god's playing field!).
