LEGO Education – Volcano Alarm

Examine the different ways scientists monitor volcanic activity.

  • Preparation;
  • Exploration phase;
  • Creation and testing phase;
  • Sharing phase.

Scientists around the world monitor the activity of various volcanoes. In some cases, they do this in order to make sure that the people living near these volcanoes are always safe. In other cases, they do so in order to prepare important scientific expeditions to study the composition of the Earth. The 3 different phases of the volcanoes are: Extinct, Inactive and Active. For each of these phases, the scientists assigned a color and defined lessons to be taken at each phase: Green: The volcano shows no sign of activity. Yellow: The volcano is showing some signs of activity and needs to be monitored. Orange: the volcano is active with some minor emissions. Red: the volcano is active with significant emissions or is close to eruption.

Study how animals use their senses in order to receive different types of information.

  • Exploration phase;
  • Creation phase;
  • Creation and testing phase;
  • Sharing phase.

Select a specific topic to discuss with your students. For example, you could focus your attention on insects and reptiles. Decide how to present the project and find some videos to watch or information to read with students. Define the elements that students must take into consideration when developing the models, namely, the use of sensors to interact with the environment, the different reactions based on the various stimuli and so on.
