The goal is to inspire more young women to pursue careers in STEM.
Volcán de Fuego (or the "Volcano of Fire") in Guatemala is a very active volcano, typically having small explosions each day. During periods of increased activity, the volcano can erupt violently, threatening thousands. With better monitoring, scientists could suggest more accurate, and timely, evacuation plans.
