      2019 Minnesota Minerals Education Workshop

      Calling All K-12 Minnesota Science Educators! Join us for the 22nd Minnesota Minerals Education Workshop! The MMEW is an annual three-day workshop focusing on the geology and mineral resources of Minnesota. It has been held in various locations throughout Minnesota since its inception in 1997. After a full day of short courses on the first day, you'll get to embark on two days’ worth of field trips to local sites of geological interest. Highlights of this year's field trips include: Tours of peat harvesting, processing operations, and restoration; Tours of an iron mine; and   Rock and fossil collecting opportunities Short Course Selection Procedure (new this year!)  Select your short course preferences as part of registration (new this year!) You will be given the option of four choices for Sessions 1 - 4. We will make every attempt to accommodate your short course choice. If for some reason the instructor or class changes, MMEW will contact you at the soonest opportunity for your second choice. A detailed description of the short courses can be accessed on the MMEW website. You will be emailed in early June about your short course schedule.  Lodging: A Special Note Lodging accommodations are off campus this year. In order to receive the MMEW price for lodging, you must purchase lodging with your registration via this website by May 19, 2019. After this date, the MMEW discount no longer applies.
