Grade 4 teachers from the Sudbury area will attend a subsidized Mining Matters

about the history of the city and evolution of the Sudbury mining complex. Stops
include re-greening sites, the first discovery of Sudbury ore, shattercones, and a
close look at modern mining technologies.
The seventh annual “Geo-Engineering Challenge” gives participating high
schools a unique Dynamic Earth experience that is fun, exciting and educational.
MineOpportunity allows students to explore geology, engineering and mining by
answering questions and completing activities that are hands-on and curriculum
based, including a tailored underground tour. Sponsors of MMTS also have the
opportunity to give a 15 minute presentation to these students and are invited to set
up a booth that will be included as part of the game!
The career fair features mining- and technology-related exhibits from businesses,
government agencies, and educational and industry partners and sponsors. Visitors
will have the opportunity to learn about the advances in our industry and our region’s
colourful mining heritage at the interactive displays. High school students are
encouraged to attend the event so come and show them the career opportunities that
are possible with your company!
