SUMMER WORKSHOP FOR MISSOURI TEACHERS
The Missouri Minerals Education Foundation
invites Missouri teachers to participate in the
Annual “Missouri is a State of Mines – Rocks,
Minerals and our Environment” workshop that is
held in late July or early August each summer.
This free workshop provides information, ideas,
materials and classroom activities involving
geology, minerals, mining, and the wise-use of
our natural resources participants can
immediately begin using in the classroom.
Activities include demonstrations, exhibits, and
tours. Daily lunches will be provided along with
plenty of hospitality, entertainment and time to
interact with fellow teachers.
The workshop is open to all K–8 teachers and
administrators who live or teach in Missouri and
is limited to 70 participants. Participants may
elect to receive two undergraduate credits, two
graduate credits or 10 CEUs/PDUs.
Details about each year’s workshop are available
by March 1. To put your name on a list to

minerals, plus a menu and all the materials to
create a “rock-in” class year.
