Mining Matters works to give educators of Indigenous youth curricula aligned tools to develop their students’ knowledge of the minerals industry and highlight the diverse job opportunities available. Workshops occur over a two-hour period, where attendees are introduced to the content of the resource kits and given suggestions on how to incorporate the materials into the classroom. Resource kits contain lesson plans, information bulletins, learning activities, rock and mineral samples, equipment, career information and additional resources.
Within the communities these workshops are open to teachers, educator assistants, all school staff, community leadership and community members. As facilitators are required to travel to remote locations, time permitting, classroom delivery may be held to augment the teachers’ understanding and usage of the resource materials.
