Understanding Forest Fire

Understanding Forest Fire for high school classes explores the essential question, “how does fire burn out of control?”. We engage students with a hands-on, inquiry-based activity where students build a landscape and then set it on fire to investigate how fire behaves, examining the effects of fuel, topography, and weather.

Understanding Forest Fire is delivered in three parts but can be adjusted to accommodate school schedules.

Free to schools and we bring teaching materials!

Note that this program is offered to Lane County schools. If you are located outside of Lane County, and would like to bring this program to your students, please contact us to see if that can be arranged.

**This program is offered November to mid-April.**
