    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.

    • 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 for the Winnemucca Workshop. This new format will provide two mornings of classroom sessions and two afternoons of mine 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 to tour the mine you missed on the first day.
     
    Underground gold mine tour - Teachers can opt into a drawing to be selected for an underground mine tour. Twelve teachers will be selected each day and the underground tour will take the place of your preselected afternoon 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!
