“The Briefcase of mineral application” Workshop – Coventry Transport Museum
24 Oct 2019 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
24 Oct 2019 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM
This innovative project, brought by Coventry University will allow visitors to learn about minerals through hands-on experiences. Discover how we use them in everyday life, and focus on tin. Where does it come from? How do we use it?
The workshop is aimed at children aged 6 to 14 years old, but all are welcome.
The project and this specific workshop complement EU Raw Materials initiatives and EU funded projects such as Minerals4EU, Suscritmat, MIN-GUIDE and RMShools.
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.Follow Us:
