French and English teachers from the Sudbury area will attend a subsidized Mining Matters workshop to learn how to deliver Earth Science based curriculum-linked activities, and to use the educational kits provided. While the teachers are learning in the workshop, their students will visit Dynamic Earth for special MMTS programming. PDAC Mining Matters develops partnerships in education, industry, and government to establish new initiatives and produce outreach materials tailored primarily to youth and teachers. These materials include award-winning classroom curriculum kits, publications such as educator newsletters and original posters, and a dedicated website. The program has helped to educate an estimated 400,000 students since it was established in 1997. For more information on the program, please visit www.pdac.ca/miningmatters.
