TMRA Teacher Workshops

Reminder: Our TMRA Annual Meeting Auction funds our “Best in the Country” Teacher Education Workshops so, your choice, you can participate or lose your right to complain!

Each summer, TMRA Teacher Workshops offer teachers science-based information about the availability, importance and development of natural resources, including lignite, uranium and industrial minerals. During these 5-day workshops, teachers tour mining and power plant facilities, visit reclamation areas and participate in hands-on labs. They return to their classrooms with earth science facts and real-world, problem-solving activities that encourage their students to use critical thinking skills.

So far – through this award-winning program – a million plus students have now heard the true story of Texas mining and reclamation, with 2,000 teachers attending since 1991 (each reaching approximately 130-150 students annually).

You can help us make a difference by supporting the Education auction at the annual meeting. OR you can be a part by sponsoring a teacher for $1,500. This provides the funds for one teacher to attend a workshop (room and board included).

You can sponsor at the live auction or you can donate online: https://www.tmra.com/store_home.asp.
