Using museum collection items, photographs and film, students will identify why we have volcanoes such as Tarawera in our region and how tourism developed at Te Wairoa in the early 1880s.

They will explore how the 1886 eruption affected the lives of people, changed the landscape and predict the likelihood of future eruptions.
