'Magic Rocks of Hontomin' and Wine and CO2 (English)

  1. 1. The Magic Rocks of Hontomín An active education activity developed for the project: Promotion of scientific culture and innovation in the population of the Merindad del Río Ubierna Municipality in collaboration with CIUDEN Fundación Ciudad de la Energía
  2. 2. The Magic Rocks of Hontomín Photos and a description of this geological journey…
  3. 3. The Magic rocks of Hontomín Photos and a description of this geological journey… Four themed tours to the Hontomin CO2 Storage Plant were developed. These included a set of activities in Hontomin village. The tours have been designed for groups of 20 children, and last approx. 4hrs - including the bus trip to Hontomin.
  4. 4. The Magic Rocks of Hontomín Photos and a description of this geological journey... The Hontomin CO2 Mystery Tour… Clue 1: The molecule, which has to be kept deep underground, is hidden in the rock near the church. • The children will find a container with small foam balls, and some sticks to connect them; they have to create a CO2 molecule and draw the element symbol based on a drawing. They keep the molecule they have made until the end of the Mystery Tour. If the molecule is well constructed, they will obtain the next clue. Clue 2: Search the yellow house where scientists monitor if the Earth is moving, if you create a good tremor, the scientist will give you a better clue! • The yellow house is the office of CIUDEN in Hontomín, where a seismograph is located; jumps will create a vibration that has to be higher than a certain magnitude, then the “scientist” will give the children a new clue to continue with the tour…
  5. 5. The Magic rocks of Hontomín Photos and a description of this geological journey… Clue 3: You will find the magic rocks that are used to store CO2. • The children have to collect both reservoir and seal/ cap rock samples in a certain part of the village - if they succeed, they obtain their next clue. By now each child should have a CO2 molecule, a reservoir rock and a seal/ cap rock, if they want to continue with the game… Clue 4: If you have “all the ingredients”, look for the scientist with a white lab-coat, who is sleeping on a bench in the village. • The monitor has to wait sleeping on a bench with a poster, which says… “You have to guess the magic word or I won´t wake up”. Once the Mystery Tour is finished, the children will be guided to the CO2 Storage Plant with all the stuff they have collected. There they will make a model of a CO2 store, explaining why we need a reservoir rock, a seal/ cap rock, and where the CO2 molecule will be stored. Finally, they are given a short explanation of the journey of the CO2 is given.
  6. 6. The Magic rocks of Hontomín Photos and a description of this geological journey... Materials required: Lab coat, wig, paper, rock cores, small foam balls and cocktail sticks to make molecules, laminate paper for the clues. To make the CO2 storage models, use the activity explained in the “CO2, Do I Know You?” file.
  7. 7. Wine & CO2, Wine & Geology An adult educational activity developed for the project: Promotion of scientific culture and innovation in the population of the Merindad del Río Ubierna Municipality in collaboration with CIUDEN Fundación Ciudad de la Energía
  8. 8. Wine and CO2 An entertaining introduction to CO2 for adults... Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and wine making…
  9. 9. Wine and CO2 An entertaining introduction to CO2 for adults... • The first wine tasting event was called “Geology & Wine”. • It focussed on the analysis of different certificates of origin from the Castilla y Leon wine making region, highlighting the impacts of weather and soil characteristics, as well as the different types of grapes. • During the explanation, participants all got a taste of each variety being discussed.
  10. 10. Wine and CO2 An entertaining introduction to CO2 for adults... • The second event - “Wine & CO2”, focussed on the role of gases like carbon dioxide and oxygen in the process of wine creation. • Described the different processes involved for different wines including carbonic maceration or sparkling wine. • The session closed with an introduction to professional wine tasting.
