For the next week, 19 educators are getting a taste of how Saskatchewan’s mining operations work.
The educators are part of the Rock’n the Classroom GeoVenture program, touring 5 mines around the province.
Saskatchewan Mining Association President Pam Schwann says teachers use their learnings in lesson plans. For example, Grade 7 students learn about mixtures and solutions in science class.
Schwann says teachers will also learn about safety and environmental programs and the over 120 career opportunities in mining.
