On-Site Activity Kit
An activity kit is now available for teachers to use during a visit to the volcano. It uses the characteristics of lava to teach students to compare and contrast samples and learn about density and viscosity. All materials needed are included in the kit. If you would like to use it during your visit, please indicate this on your fee waiver form and ask for the kit when you arrive.
