 Twenty-five students from the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics Affiliated Primary School came to the Institute of Geology on August 30, 2018. Dr. Chen Zhengquan of our institute gave them a particularly vivid geography lesson.

  Dr. Chen gave a wonderful explanation to the students about volcanic myths, volcanic power, stunning volcanic phenomena, volcanic impacts on human environments, volcano monitoring and experimental simulation of volcanoes. In the explanation process, Dr. Chen showed a wealth of pictures and wonderful short videos, which gave the students a number of incredible surprises. Finally, Dr. Chen described some interesting phenomena from his field investigation of Changbai Mountain volcano, which made the students sigh with emotion over the huge energy of the volcano andspontaneously develop  a strong interest in volcano research. Afterwards, Dr. Chen led the students on a visit to the volcano laboratory of the Institute of Geology. In the laboratory, the students gathered around Dr. Chen and had a warm discussion of the problems they were concerned about.

  The popular science activity ended in a warm and unfinished atmosphere . The parents who accompanied the students on the visit were very grateful to the leaders of our institute for their careful and thoughtful arrangements and the great attention they paid to science popularization, especially the vivid and rich explanation given by Dr. Chen Zhengquan.
