Kids – get close up with volcanoes in Asheboro library event

ASHEBORO – Since the dawn of time, volcanoes have filled us with wonder and terror.

Kids ages 8-12 are invited to learn about them in “Volcanoes: Mountains of Rock and Fire,” an interactive program led by North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences educator Luka Rolleri at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 20, at the Asheboro Public Library.

Due to the hands-on nature of the activities, space is limited, so call 336-318-6804 to sign up.

Volcanic rock has given us tools, countertops and island chains. The fertile soil has nurtured civilizations, and violent eruptions have ended them.

Using real, hands-on specimens and interactive activities, Rolleri will demonstrate what ancient eruptions can tell us about volcanoes today.

Rolleri has been with the museum for four years, during which time he has developed programs on a variety of topics ranging from dinosaurs to giraffes to the Titanic. He holds an undergraduate degree in anthropology, and is passionate about connecting people to the human stories behind science.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street.
