Nevada Mining Association Hosts Science Education Workshop

The Nevada Mining Association will host the 26th Annual Southern Nevada Earth Science Education Workshop at Faith Lutheran High School from Tuesday, April 19 through Thursday, April 21.

The free workshop is open to all K-12 teachers, librarians and administrators, and features one day of classroom work and two days of organized field trips to mines and other facilities. The goal of the workshop is to provide new knowledge, insight and materials that teachers can use to help students learn about minerals and mineral production in Nevada.

The workshop also includes beginner-level sessions for first-time participants and an advanced track session for those educators  familiar with rocks and minerals. New activities, methods of presentation and advanced exercises will be included in the curriculum. Participants can receive graduate in-service credit from the University of Nevada or professional development education (PDE) credit from the Clark County School District.

All interested individuals can register for the workshop online or by calling (775) 829-2121. Food, drink and transportation will be provided for the workshop and tours. Faith Lutheran High School is located at 2015 S Hualapai Way, Las Vegas, NV 89117.
