Spring SAVY 2018, Day 2- Earth Explorers (1st/2nd)
Day 2 in Earth Explorers was all about VOLCANOES! With we quick recap about tectonic plate movement, we delved into how rock is made and destroyed in Earth’s mantle. Then we discussed how volcanoes play a role in this process. Vents that release hot lava, volcanoes can come in many shapes and sizes. They also can be explosive (Diet coke and mentos) or effusive (ketchup and baking soda), but the process always depends on bubbles created in the magma chambers. Bubbles plus pressure equals a volcanic eruption!
