Students Visit the Ohio Caverns

Posted in Events

On August 11, TRECA Digital Academy students visited the Ohio Caverns in West Liberty, OH.

The Ohio Caverns are the largest in the state, with over 2 miles of surveyed passageways ranging in depth from 30 feet to 103 feet. Students took a 50-minute, one-mile walk through the caverns where they learned about cave formations, how speleothems are formed, how minerals are deposited, and the slow evaporation rate in a cave system. We learned that stalactites hang from the ceiling while stalagmites grow from the cave floor, and when they grow together, they form a pillar or column.
