This ten-day (9 night) field experience will take you to the famous volcanoes of the Sicily, the Eolian islands and the bay of Naples where you will experience the geological and cultural history of these amazing landforms.
Join other educators for hikes and cruises to explore the active volcanoes of Etna, Volcano, Stromboli, and Vesuvius. We will
discuss not only their tectonic settings but how their chemistry influences their eruptive styles. We will visit the famous site of Pompei and see how the city of Naples has grown around an active volcano.
We will visit these sites with a local expert as well as world renown geoscience educators Chris Spencer and Gary Lewis.
We will model in the field:
- Inquiry learning and group learning
- Using field notebooks
- Collecting and recording data – and see modern data collection technology
You will return to your classroom with:
- Classroom samples
- Amazing images of sites you have seen
- Data collected
- Skills you can transfer to your students.
