Rocky Mountain National Park includes spectacular mountains, streams, pine forests, diverse wildlife, and lush vegetation. Go on an expedition with Noah Justice to the Rocky Mountains to explore how they were formed and eroded by the catastrophic tectonics of the Flood.
In this episode you'll learn:
- Evidence of erosion and mass wasting show a recent formation
- The birth of the Rocky Mountains produced the Great Sand Dunes National Park, Garden of the Gods, and Devils Tower as well.
This series is produced by Kyle Justice, whose work has appeared on such networks as National Geographic, ESPN, and the Outdoor Channel, along with his creative homeschool-family team. Teen host Noah Justice serves as your guide to truth on the ground at national parks and other geologic locations, bringing you an educational and entertaining adventure!

An excellent learning experience Review by Danika Cooley
What did you think of this book?
Our family loves (loves, loves) exploring God’s beautiful creation and we’ve been to many of these sites in the western United States, which makes learning about the science behind the amazing nature all the more special for us.
I’ve reviewed each of the ten Awesome Science DVDs independently with purchase links below each one.
About the Videos
I love the emphasis of this series on viewing scientific data through the lens of biblical history, and upon the gospel message in each video. Noah Justice discusses the scientific data for each area, explaining how secular scientists interpret the evidence. He then explains the way Creation scientists interpret data through the lens of biblical history before comparing the evidence for each viewpoint. Noah Justice also talks about how the catastrophic, global Flood of Noah explains the geology and other science (including chemistry and microbiology) of each area. At the end of each video, he explains that God once judged the earth through the global flood. Jesus will return, and God will judge the earth again, this time by fire (2 Peter). He explains the gospel and the need to repent and follow Christ.
Noah Justice is ages 14-17 in the ten videos so far (twelve videos by the time you read this!), and he does a wonderful job of presenting some tough scientific concepts in the course of just 30 minutes for each video. The first six videos have a coordinating study guide with vocabulary, worksheets, and additional written information to go with the video. With the depth of information involved, I’d suggest a copy for each student! This series–with the study guides–is an excellent choice for science over the course of a year for grades 4-9 or so.
The Awesome Science series is produced by Noah’s father, Kyle Justice, whose work has appeared on such networks as National Geographic, ESPN, and the Outdoor Channel, along with his creative homeschool-family team.
Explore Rocky Mountain National Park (Episode 8)
In this video, Noah Justice takes us to Rocky Mountain National Park in central Colorado, covering 415 square miles. There 150 lakes and 450 miles of streams, with 12,000 foot peaks. Noah Justice begins talking about how mountains are formed. They can be folded, domed, fault-blocked, or volcanic. He explains that a catastrophic event, like the Flood, could have formed mountains in a very short period of time, rather than the millions of years claimed by secular science. The mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park are covered in marine fossils. Secular scientists think the park was once covered in a shallow sea.
Noah Justice then discusses tectonic plate movement, first proposed by a Creation scientist. He explains the secular scientific theory for the formation of the Rocky Mountain range. Creation scientists agree with the mechanism for mountain formation, but support the idea that it happened much quicker during a catastrophe. Catastrophic plate tectonics is the name for this. Noah Justice also discusses subduction, granite, continental shelves, and the formation of canyons. Much of this information reiterates aspects from some of the other videos, and introduces more details and further science. This repetition and deepening of information helps kids really understand the information. Noah Justice also discusses erosion, uplift, and continental height reduction, and how these point to a young earth.
Noah Justice then takes us to dunes in the park valley. He asks a good question: how did the sand dunes get there–in the middle of the mountains? They probably blew in from the Rio Grande River. This process is still taking place. Noah Justice talks about the formation of sand dunes across the world. We also take a look at Devil’s Tower, and Noah Justice presents two theories on how the Tower formed. It’s an impressive display.
I want to thank Master Books for providing me with the Awesome Science with Noah Justice DVD set in return for my honest opinion.
