SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY LAVA PROJECT MIXES SCIENCE, ART, AND EDUCATION

Syracuse University is a public good, an anchor institution positioned to play an integral role in today’s knowledge-based, global society by leveraging a precious commodity—intellectual capital—with partners from all sectors of the economy: public, private, and non-profit.
The Syracuse University Lava Project is a unique mix of science, art and education that were developed to investigate the physical properties, aesthetics and educational opportunities of creating basaltic lava flows in a controlled, albeit outdoor laboratory environment.
Chunks of basaltic rock, similar to that found on the seafloor in Hawaii, are melted and poured to produce natural-scale lava flows up to a few meters long. In addition to facilitating scientific experiments that engage faculty and students at SU and volcanologists from other institutions, the project also supports artistic creations. The lava experiments permit sculpture students to create works of art by pouring lava into molds that can be preserved for display in schools and museums.
