K-12 Educators

Welcome to ALL ABOUT MINING: 21st CENTURY MINING FOR K-12 EDUCATORS.

This course provides a detailed overview of America’s modern mining industry, answering important questions such as:
  • What does the mining industry do and how does it impact the environment?
  • How does the mining industry function?
  • Why is mining important to American society?
As a participant you’ll learn how our modern mining industry is discovering and producing minerals, energy and a variety of other materials we need for our global society while also working to protect the environment and leave the land in better condition after reclamation when the mining process is complete.
The All About Mining course is an interactive hybrid course encompassing three components:
  • At your own pace on-line lectures, select quizzes on lectures, and completion of three lesson plans;
