In this activity, students will participate in a hands-on lab to help them visualize and understand the process of extracting copper from ore.
Take students through a virtual learning simulation where they will navigate three stages of copper processing and meet mining experts who describe their roles in the operations phase of mining, and share information about the equipment and processes used in each stage.
Students will be transported into a mine site to explore the different careers, technology and equipment used during the copper extraction, processing and refinement phases of mining.
Take an interactive look into modern-day mining with this authentic learning simulation focused on the exploration phase of hard rock mining.
In this activity, students will learn about the costs associated with operating a mine and how technology can help to
reduce the costs in three areas; energy, resources, and safety.
In this two-part activity, students will learn about the process of open pit mining using Google Earth and a 360
virtual mine tour.
