National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) Conferences

MEC enjoys participating in the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) Conferences. Our booths display and provide free educational materials designed to help teachers educate their students on the importance of minerals and mining in their daily lives. Knowledgeable volunteers talk to teachers about their own work in the minerals industry.

2023 NSTA NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SCIENCE EDUCATION IN ATLANTA, GA

MEC will be attending the 2023 National Conference on Science Education in Atlanta, GA, Wednesday, March 22 – Saturday, March 25, 2023. MEC will have an exhibition booth (#1616) to give teachers resources for their students on the topic of the importance of mined minerals in their everyday lives. MEC does this by providing rock/mineral sample kits with a key explaining how these specimens are used in everyday life. Additional materials provided include classroom posters and materials on careers in the mining industry. The first two thousand teachers to visit MEC booth (#1616) at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta GA, will receive a free rock box.
