Modern Mining in the Classroom
MineralsEd partners with the BC branch of the Canadian Mineral Processors to provide this guest speaker program during the month of April in lead up to BC Mining Month in May. The presentations are 60-90 minutes depending on the class schedule, and are designed to support Grade 4-5-6 students that are doing mining units in their classrooms.
The volunteer speakers, all of them engineers or other professionals who work in mining, will give a presentation on the mining process and talk about their work and careers. They will also demonstrate froth flotation and magnetic separation techniques that are used to recover different metals.
The speakers live in many different communities around BC. Submit your request and we will do our best to coordinate a guest speaker to visit your class.
