  • Overview of Workshop

    Join us April 16-17 for the 2019 Southern Nevada Mineral Workshop. We are offering two fun-filled days of rocks, minerals, and mining. This workshop will be our 30th Annual Workshop in Southern 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.
     
    Day 1: Teachers will attend classroom sessions and general sessions in the auditorium. 
     
    Day 2: Teachers will gather in the auditorium 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 and mining 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!
