The origins of our everyday stuff are a mystery to most. This workshop will take you on a natural resource journey from ore to store to explore how Earth materials are acquired and refined to create the products on our shelves.

The content of this workshop is a perfect fit for elementary and middle school teachers seeking innovative ways to connect students to everyday Earth and Space Science phenomena. The academy takes place at Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensburg, Sussex County, on Saturday Nov. 2 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Attending teachers will receive classroom resources to effectively tie the workshop content into their curricula related to K-8 Earth and Space Science in the Next Generation Science Standards. Six professional development hours will be provided.

Workshop fee: $30, payable the day of the workshop and includes lunch and materials.
