Volcanoes and earthquakes Workshop
Earthquakes are the shaking, rolling or sudden shock of the earth’s surface. They are the Earth’s natural means of releasing stress. Sometimes a quake can cause magma to rise up to the surface – this is when a volcano erupts! Replicate a disastrous volcanic eruption or catastrophic earthquake. Can you can build a tower that can withstand a quake?
