Description:

In this activity (located on page 2), learners will construct tiny model geysers out of film canisters, warm water, and antacid seltzer tablets. Thinking about what happens inside the canister to make the geyser erupt leads to a discussion about pressure and the process that creates real geysers. Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV GPS: Geysers.
