From August 19th to August 20th in 2016, the 17th Children’s Summer School on Earthquakes and Volcanoes ( in Nanki Kumano Geopark was held. Based on the theme of "The Secrets of the Nanki Kumano's Ocean and Mountains", thirty eight children studied the meaning of their familiar sights and realized the hidden activities of the earth. They were from not only inside Wakayama prefecture but also all over the country. They visited Hashigui-iwa Rock, Ichimai-iwa Monolith, K-NET Kushimoto Observation points, etc. outdoors. While they conducted several geological experiments indoors.
We will report the secrets of the sea and the mountains in Nanki kumano discovered by children, and achievements of the Children Summer School on Earthquakes and Volcanoes in the following presentation.
