Want to make your Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics teaching and learning exciting?
What could be better than linking them to active volcanoes!
This resource shows how the STEM fields can be used on an active volcano on the island of Hawaii. The resource contains videos on each field (5-10 mins each), teaching notes and reproducible classroom activities to extend the learning with students.
STEM on an Active Volcano has been developed to provide teachers with materials that are aligned with the US New Generation Science Standards and Common Core mathematics practices. For NGSS and Common Core mapping document, click here.
Cost of full package - US$24.99 (full package).
Digital download of all materials.
The full resources contains all of the following modules, teachers notes and activities.
Science - the video covers the basics of hot-spot volcanoes, how they erupt and their life cycles. We will see recent activity and volcanic features and products (gasses, liquids, and solids).

Technology - the video shows what technology is being used to monitor the activity of the volcanoes and how scientists used that technology to understand the science occurring below the surface.

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.

Mathematics - the video shows how data is being collected on ancient volcanic activity and how it is used to measure the volume of past lava flows. We show how simple measures in the field and in lava tubes can be used to understand volcanic events.
