12 May 13ESS Unlock Volcano Secrets
Our Year 13 Earth and Space Science students explored some Auckland volcanoes this week, gathering evidence to help them determine when these volcanoes erupted. Highlights included being out in the open on a beautiful sunny autumn day and taking in the expansive views from Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill) and Maungarei (Mt Wellington). We also had a rocking time going into a volcanic crater to inspect the scoria and then playing Tū Kōhatu (stacking rocks).
Even though the steep walks up Maungarei and Maungakiekie were challenging, we all had a fantastic time appreciating the geological history and taonga of Auckland.
