I love this photo.
The children enthralled at the picture but more because they got to talk science with a real scientist, in this case a volcanologist.
As a teacher I can help the children in my class understand plate tectonics, I can show them pictures, I can inspire them to ask questions and show them how to conduct experiments.
But I can’t tell them what it smells like near a volcano, the instruments you use or that you need to throw out your clothes after you’ve been near an erupting volcano.
Most importantly, I can’t tell them about the amazing adventures you can have as a scientist.
Sometimes you need to ask others…
