We have at least 10 volcano demonstrations for schools and public that will be on display all week, and plenty of volcano photos and some artwork, we have 5 more outreach tables to fill and plenty of poster boards, so if you have an easily transportable demo or outreach poster or selection of volcano art (by you, school kids or professionals) something you can set up.
