Fire Mountains of the Eifel: The Emmelberg
Jul 7, 2021
Workshop for families with children "in the volcano".
In addition to an interactive introduction to volcanology and rock science for budding volcanologists, in this workshop we dedicate ourselves to individual accessible volcanoes and what they offer and can be seen in them. We will look for interesting stones and minerals, learn about their differences in colour, hardness and other properties and then know, for example, whether they are of volcanic origin. No question should remain unanswered. This workshop is especially suitable for families with children of school age or older. Parents accompany the children on their explorations in what is for them new and unfamiliar terrain.
Sturdy shoes and (weather) appropriate clothing are recommended. Photography equipment, magnifying glass, container for rock samples, possibly a geologist's hammer, protective goggles, protective gloves are useful.
