BEMIDJI -- On Wednesday morning, children huddled around tables at the Headwaters Science Center, examining plates full of red goo.

"We're playing with magma," said Isaac Christmann, who soon will begin sixth grade in the Kindred Public School District in North Dakota.

"We're playing with magma now, but we'll get to see how the plates act on the magma" to simulate how earthquakes develop, said Addie Dauner, who will start fifth grade in the Schoolcraft Learning Community.
