As possible the Lava Project offers lava flow demonstrations for local K-12 classes (as well as the general public). Student groups up to about 100 have come to the Comstock Art Building to see real lava- something that is not possible for students who do not live near active volcanoes (e.g., Iceland or Hawaii) or can afford to vacation in these distant places. Volcanoes are among the most dramatic natural phenomena and commonly featured in a wide range of natural sciences classes. Teachers commonly arrange their curricula around the lava flow events and encourage the students to design their own pre-planned or spontaneous experiments. This is an exciting active learning experience that can significantly broaden the horizons of local and regional student groups. The Project commonly offers souvenir pieces of lava flows as a reminder of these events
