For example, Astronomy is the study of space and the objects within. These objects are made from atoms, and can be investigated though chemistry. They follow the laws of Physics. Earth is one of those objects. Earth’s biologic organisms evolved and are influenced by the various expressions of geology, and life has altered the geology of the Earth.</p><p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 21:02:53 +0000 Shawn Fitzmaurice 12346 at http://wfdd.org Fish Tectonics The Dinosaurs In Your Backyard http://wfdd.org/post/dinosaurs-your-backyard <p dir="ltr"><strong><a href="http://wfdd.org/programs/sciworks-radio" target="_blank">SciWorks Radio</a> is a production of 88.5 WFDD and <a href="http://sciworks.org/">SciWorks</a>, the Science Center and Environmental Park of Forsyth County, located in Winston-Salem.</strong></p><p dir="ltr"><span style="line-height: 1.5em; font-size: 14px;"><a href="http://wfdd.org/post/new-dinosaur-discovery" title="SciWorks Radio : Siats Meekerorum.">(Hear Dr. Zanno talk about her recent dinosaur discovery, Siats Meekerorum, on last week's SciWorks Radio)</a></span></p> Thu, 03 Jul 2014 19:42:02 +0000 Shawn Fitzmaurice 10631 at http://wfdd.org The Dinosaurs In Your Backyard A New Dinosaur Discovery http://wfdd.org/post/new-dinosaur-discovery <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;</span><strong style="line-height: 1.5;">SciWorks&nbsp;Radio is a production of 88.5&nbsp;WFDD&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="http://sciworks.org/">SciWorks</a>, the Science Center and Environmental Park of Forsyth County, located in Winston-Salem.</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;</span></p> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 16:06:23 +0000 Shawn Fitzmaurice 10468 at http://wfdd.org A New Dinosaur Discovery Run Robot Run! http://wfdd.org/post/run-robot-run <p dir="ltr"><strong>SciWorks Radio is a production of 88.5 WFDD and&nbsp;</strong><a href="http://sciworks.org/"><a href="http://sciworks.org/"><font color="#0c4ca2"><strong>SciWorks</strong></font></a></a><strong>, the Science Center and </strong><strong>Environmental Park of Forsyth County, located in Winston-Salem.</strong></p><p dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p><p></p><p>(<a href="http://www.wsrobotrun.com/funrun.html" title="Robot Fun Run">Find out about the adult Robot Fun Run happening Friday June 27, 2014.</a>)</p><p dir="ltr">Many of us have grown up with heroes like <a href="http://www.nasa.gov/centers/glenn/about/bios/neilabio.html">Neil Armstrong</a>, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Goodall" title="Jane Goodall Wikipedia ">Jane Goodall</a>, or <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Horner_(paleontologist)">Jack Horner</a>, the famous paleontologist.
