- When You're Hot - For over 120 years, Mount Saint Helens, a beautiful, snow-covered peak in Washington State, remained calm. Then on May 18, 1980, people heard a loud explosion as hot rock, gas and ash shot into the air. Mount Saint Helens had "woken up." Elementary and younger middle school students investigate volcanoes, meet a volcanologist and even make edible crystals on this part of Our Dynamic Planet, which includes links to other volcano-oriented sites.
