This innovative projects brings the opportunity to learn more about minerals through hands-on experience. Specifically targetting 6-14 year old students and their teachers. This project is orientated for Wider Society Learning (WSL) and aims to raise students’ knowledge of mining activities and mineral applications.
The Project seeks to bring minerals and mining closer to society as a whole. Its ultimate goal is that citizens from an early age know where the mineral products they use in daily life come from, and how our daily purchase decisions affect to the social environment of the people who live in countries with resources exploitation. That it is not possible to live without minerals and without mines but, through example and a friendly approach, communicate that mining is a modern activity and that it has an impact on the society and environment that can be eased.
