2016 IMAA Teachers' Workshop
The workshop will focus on the identification, economic value, and the uses of a variety of rocks and minerals in your everyday life. Volunteers from the aggregates mining industry also provide expert knowledge on mining procedures in Indiana. Remember: if it can't be grown, it must be mined!
The IMAA Teachers' Workshop uses hands-on sessions to present activities that you can take back to the classroom, with helpful tips on how the activities can be worked into your curriculum. There are also two field trips to active aggregate mining operations, where on-site instruction will be provided concerning extraction technology, quality control and how the aggregates industry addresses environmental issues.
