Great project

by Susan German (Hallsville, MO)
The project has students developing research questions using the information they have learned in previous activities. While I wonder about the conceptual level for the age of students, I could see where this is truly high level, high engagement project.

Archive: NSTA Science Update: Kilauea Summit and Lower East Rift Volcanic Eruptions, April 23, 2019

Lava in Hawaii 2018During the Kilauea natural disaster of 2018, outbreaks of lava fountains up to 300 feet high, lava flows, and volcanic gas were preceded by earthquakes and ground deformation that created cracks on the roads. As a result, thousands of people living in the Leilani Estates subdivision on the island of Hawaii had to be evacuated; some with injuries. 

All participants received a certificate of participation and 100 Learning Center activity points for attending and completing the post-program evaluation.
