A visit to an operating mine is a great firsthand learning expereince for teachers who teach about BC's natural resources. Meet the people, see the process, learn about the economics and recognize the role of the operation to the nearby communities.
Pro-D Teacher Field Trips
Every year MineralsEd works with groups and individuals to provide Pro-D mining and geology field trips for teachers. Browse MineralsEd Field Trip photo galleries here. If you would like to arrange a teacher field trip in your area, contact MineralsEd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we increasingly become city dwellers, our familiarty with the land and its natural resources becomes more vague. A visit to Vancouver Harbour lets us see and appreciate the significance of Canada's natural resources to jobs, the economy and global trade.
