Hot Wax Volcano

The Hot Wax Volcano exhibit enables visitors to create many features of a shield volcano from hot wax. Turning a handwheel clockwise pushes molten wax out of a hole in a large circular flat steel plate. Wax then flows over the surface to create an additive volcano-like structure. Using various combinations of pumping and waiting, qualities of real flowing lava are easily achieved.
