Do you know what makes geysers erupt?

Can you name the 3 geological requirements that must be present, in order to make a geyser?
Can you name the countries (including the United States) which contain the highest number of geysers?
I bet you can guess which National Park in the United States contains almost half the world’s geysers!

Watch the 2 videos below and if you’re up to the challenge, make a physical or digital model or diagram of a geyser. Show it to friends or family members and present them with the questions above. It might surprise you just how little is actually known about this geological phenomena.
