#ExpeditionEtna

Expedition Etna was a journey to the highest active volcano in Europe. During the expedition the team uploaded continuous updates on their progress as they made their way to the summit of the volcano.

For each day of the expedition, the team uploaded a new activity for schools in Meteorology, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Every activity includes introduction and conclusion videos with a comprehensive, printable worksheet.

Check out a sample of our Hands-on, educational resources below!

In this activity, Suze explains how the molten rock comes through the solid crust of the Earth, and make our own volcano! You will see how magma (molten rock below ground) comes to the surface and how lava (molten rock above ground) forms a volcano.

The incredibly hot conditions in a volcano results in rock formation that we don’t see anywhere else. Pumice is one of these rocks and is incredibly light due to the air bubbles that are trapped in it as it cools from lava. In this activity, Neil explains how you can perform your own experiment to investigate the density of materials.

Huw shows you how to make a weather vane and accurately detect which direction the wind in blowing in. They’re very important for meteorologists as the direction the wind comes from has a big impact on the weather we can expect.
