The Nevada Division of Minerals and the Nevada Mining Association would like to invite you to join us April 12-13 for the 31st Annual Southern Nevada Earth Science Education Two-Day Workshop. This PDE training is completely free and provides the opportunity to earn one PDE credit. The two-day workshop will take place in-person at Faith Lutheran Middle School and High School located at 2015 S. Hualapai Way, Las Vegas 89117 (see map below). We are offering two fun-filled days of rocks, minerals, and mining. On day one, participants will spend the day rotating between five classroom sessions. Two of the sessions are required for all participants and the remaining three sessions offer a variety of electives so participants can choose the topic best suited for their grade-level curriculum. On day two, attendees will participate in a grade-level breakout session to collaborate with other teachers on how to adapt the material for use in their classrooms. After which participants will depart on one of three field trip options to active mine sites and/or areas of geologic/cultural significance. Masks will be required on the bus for the field trip.  For more information and to register please visit Please feel free to call 702-486-4343 or 775-829-2121 with any questions.
