Educational Activities

Cràter Studio
A local film producer, Cràter Studio, is preparing a science fiction series located in La Garrotxa, and they are looking for new talent! You will become screenplay writers and create a science fiction story based on the socio-environmental challenges facing the region, in a context of climate emergency and global crisis. In order to give scientific rigour to the story, you will have to create a credible narrative story from an initial phase of documentation, whose first step is the exhibition hall. The next step is the preparation of the script and the storyboard to help you express your ideas. Your final task will be to present your projects to your classmates. Remember, just like in Hollywood, the panel will be evaluating and rating all projects.  Who will produce the most original, the most accurate, the best comedy or even the best tragedy?
Espai Cràter Guided Tour
Come and discover the new Espai Cràter, the new volcano center! Discover, talk, and reflect on the formation and structure of our planet, volcanic activity, its materials and characteristics, the risk assessment and prevention, the roles that volcanoes have played in the region of La Garrotxa, and the socio-environmental challenges of the future. You can tour the exhibition hall of Espai Cràter, individually or in groups, with our educational staff. Discover Espai Cràter secrets at the center and try out the interactive exhibition modules.
A Guided Visit to the Montsacopa Volcano
Come and discover one of Olot’s own volcanoes, right next to the Espai Cràter! This volcano is formed by a regular-shaped cone and a well-preserved crater. You will find out how it was formed, the history of its volcanic activity, its materials and its characteristics. You can also visit the volcano’s lapilli quarries, which are a local point of geological, scientific, cultural, educational and scenic interest. All information has been adapted to the different ages and needs of each group level. Two types of activities are available: the Reduced Tour, which includes a visit to the volcano’s lapilli quarries, and the Complete Tour, where visitors go up to the crater.
