Join us March 26th and 27th for the 2013 Las Vegas Mineral Workshop. We are offering two fun filled days of rocks, minerals and mining. This workshop has been brought to Clark County for over 35 years! Workshop is provided at NO cost to the teacher, everything is provided by the Nevada Mining Association members and Nevada Division of Minerals.
The goal of the workshop is to educate K-12 Nevada teachers about earth sciences, the importance of mined materials and the role that mining plays in our lives. Classroom materials and lessons will be provided to all who attend. All lessons are Nevada standards based and fit the new STEM standards.
Receive and share information to increase knowledge of the earth sciences.
Analyze information to develop lesson plans appropriate to all grade levels.
Understand the importance of mining and the minerals industry in today's society.
Teachers can receive University credit or Professional Development credit for attending.
Day 1: Teachers have a large selection of sessions to choose from to build personalized schedules.
Day 2: Teachers will enjoy group presentations in the morning followed by prize drawings for a digital microscope and a real gold splatter! We will then board buses to visit some great tour locations and teachers will select which tour they would like to attend.
All food, beverages, snacks, safety equipment and travel arrangements for the tours are provided by us! So come join us and see how much mineral education rocks!
