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.
