New York Virtual Volcano Observatory brings the experience of exploring a volcano to Governors Island. Join volcanologists from CUNY and other NYC institutions to discover the complex life of magmas and volcanos – and the rich volcanic history of the New York region – through virtual reality experiences, a volcano sound gallery, guest speakers and kid-friendly activities.
Touch volcanic rock (lava from New Jersey!) and examine rock crystals under a microscope.
Listen to the sound of the volcano, through recordings of actual eruptions and the music it inspired.
Explore volcanoes from across the world and close to home through virtual reality interactions. (Image credit: Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Brett Carr)
