Teachers' Day at AME Roundup 2018

Registration is now closed.

MineralsEd, in partnership with the Association for Mineral Exploration (AME), will host a professional development program for teachers on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. This event is sponsored by Teck. 

AME Roundup is a gathering of thousands of people who work in some capacity in mineral development, from exploration to reclamation. It is unique event that provides MineralsEd an opportunity to organize a professional development program for teachers on topics related the the many aspects of mineral development.

Our Teachers’ Day theme in 2018 returns to a topic in Earth Science: 4 Billion Years of Change: Earth Through Geologic Time. MineralsEd partner-teacher Kerry Lockwood, is pleased to team up with Dr. Stuart Sutherland, and other faculty from UBC Earth and Ocean Sciences department to present a program with teaching presentations and accompanying demonstrations targeting the content from the curriculum competencies on:

  • Fossil records & geological dating
  • Measuring geological time
  • Major geological events of local significance
  • Drifting continents and the history of BC

During the final part of the afternoon, teachers will be provided a pass that will allow them to enter and explore the large AME Roundup trade show on their own (1:30-4:00).

This is a fantastic learning opportunity that is highlighting the Earth Science curricular content for classroom teachers in Grade 7 to12. Don't miss it!
