This Make a Volcano science kit was written by qualified scientists in association with the Melbourne Museum.
With this easy, safe and fun kit you can recreate the spectacular sight of a mini-Vesuvius eruption in your own home or classroom.
The kit comes complete with five different experiments:
- Make a ‘lava lamp’
- Learn about viscosity
- Build and erupt a plaster volcano
- Make your own edible volcanic rock
- Make a bubbling mud pool
The accompanying information booklet provides real-world links for the experiments, focusing on the Southern Hemisphere, in particular Australia and New Zealand, and explains how volcanoes erupt and where they are located.
Ages 8 years and up.
