Want to make your teaching and learning of engineering exciting?

What could be better than learning about the use of engineering on an active volcano!

This resource shows how Engineering is used on an active volcano on the island of Hawaii.   The resource contains a brief video, teaching notes and a reproducible classroom activity to extend the learning with students.

Please note that this is a module of the STEM on an Active Volcano and contains just the engineering segments of the complete package.




Engineering – the video shows ways engineering is being used to protect communities from the effects of volcanic hazards, provide transport infrastructure, and how the heat of the volcano is being used to generate electricity.





Accompanying Classroom Resource

An accompanying classroom resource includes video script, active listening sheets, and a suggested reproducible classroom activity.


Developed by teachers for teachers – in the classroom or at home.

And funded in part by the generous support of teachers and colleagues through Kickstarter!
