Mount St. Helens is an important geologic monument for hikers, tourists, and different groups of scientists.
The eruption that began on May 18, 1980, provided an opportunity to closely watch a volcano in action and how the devastated area was changed and has since begun to recover. I will talk about the eruptions and the tools volcanologists use to learn about the volcano, and to watch out for future activity.
What happened on May 18, 1980, and what did scientists learn?
What are the different hazards at volcanoes?
How do volcanologists monitor volcanoes?
What does a volcanologist do?
How can you become a volcanologist or geologist?
Students will learn what one of the many diverse careers in science looks like, and how much fun it can be!
Using Mount St. Helens as the main example, they will learn some of the volcanic hazards in the United States and around the world, the different ways to study and monitor these dangers to keep people safe.
Hello everyone! I am excited to chat with you all tomorrow. I will be giving a 20-30 minute presentation then I will be happy to answer any questions about volcanoes or having a career in science. See you tomorrow!

We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
