We All Rock

MineralsEd has teamed up with the Royal BC Museum and the Stewart Museum (Stewart, B.C.) for May Mining Month! 

Rocks and minerals are all around us, but did you know how important they are in our everyday lives? Just think, the pencil lead you use, batteries, electronics, appliances, vehicles, electrical wires, the salt on your table and the coins in your pocket, and much more, all contain elements from rocks.

May is Mining Month in British Columbia, so for this session of RBCM @ Home(Kids) we are learning about the rock cycle with special guests Shirley Rosichuk at the Stewart Museum in Stewart B.C. and Allegra Whistler at MineralsEd in Vancouver, B.C. 

Join us on Wednesday, May 19 at 11:00-11:30 am as we learn about rocks and the rock cycle, and uncover why it is all so important through a fun, hands-on activity. This event will be recorded.
