How could Alfred Wegener best prove his theory to his colleagues?
Wait...the ground underneath my feet is moving constantly? The continents were once a large mass?
Students become continental drift theorist Alfred Wegener and try to convince their learned colleagues of the theory, using evidence Wegener gathered. Other students act as the learned colleagues and work on proving Wegener's theory incorrect; they end by meeting at a scientific conference and debating the issue.
