    Join us March 27-28 for the 2018 Southern Nevada Mineral Workshop. We are offering two fun-filled days of rocks, minerals, and mining. This workshop will be our 29th Annual in Northern Nevada. The workshop is provided FREE to teachers, 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 continuing education credit for attending.
    We are excited to unveil a new workshop format this year. This new format will provide two mornings of classroom sessions and two afternoons of tours. 
    Day 1: Teachers will select two classroom sessions for the morning to learn about rocks and minerals.In the afternoon we will go out and visit active gold mining operations.
    Day 2: Teachers will select two classroom sessions for the morning. Come into the theater for some group presentations followed by prize drawings for a microscope and a real gold splatter! We will then depart in the afternoon for a geologic tour. 
    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!
