MineralsEd was created to assist teachers in developing educational materials to teach about minerals, mining, and Earth science in the classroom.
A partnership program between teachers and the minerals industry in British Columbia, MineralsEd's goals are to "foster a well-informed public through school education based on accurate and balanced minerals information, and to stimulate young peoples' interest in minerals industry careers."
MineralsEd offers teachers:
- A monthly email newsletter.
- A comprehensive and searchable Teacher Resources database.
- Instructional workshops for teachers' professional development.
- Classroom workshops, outreach programs, and more for your class.
MineralsEd is working towards developing the student section of the website into a more interactive and fun space to learn about Earth sciences, BC's mineral resources, the crucial role of minerals in everyday life, and the responsible use of these resources.
