Minerals and Mining

Saturday, November 21, 2020

What do you picture when you think of mining?  Diamonds?  Rubies?  Gold?  But what about … toothpaste?!  Before your toothpaste makes it to your toothbrush, the ingredients are extracted from the ground; your toothpaste started out looking like a pile of rocks!  In this session, we will be making our own toothpaste at home and learning about other every day materials that use minerals from mines. 

Preparation: Click here for a list of materials.

Expert: STEM professionals from Mining Matters, an organization that educates young people about Earth sciences and the minerals industry will be leading the session.
