What is the IMAA Teachers' Workshop?
This workshop is specially created for K-12 science educators in Indiana.
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!
How does the Workshop operate?
You will not be sitting through boring seminars all day! 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.
Is professional credit available for attending?
All participants will receive Professional Growth Points for attending the
entire workshop. You can also apply to receive 1 graduate credit hour from
the Indiana University School of Education at an additional cost. All paperwork to receive the graduate credit will be
available at the beginning of the workshop and will be due on the final day of the
workshop. Payment will be billed at a later date. Please contact
Polly Sturgeon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Educational
Outreach Coordinator for the Indiana Geological Survey with any questions regarding
the IU graduate credit.
