Explore the exciting world of volcanoes and earthquakes and their effects on society in this interactive streamed show.

In Volcano Town, a smoking volcano is causing concern for the local residents, but the team of scientists sent to investigate have gone missing! Your pupils must step up as earth scientists in order to save the day.

Your class will investigate geological forces from deep within the Earth using demonstrations that explore earthquakes and flowing lava. Developing their scientific thinking skills, will they be able to use their training to save Volcano Town from a deadly eruption?
