MB Geological Survey Unveils “DIG IT” Card Deck

The Manitoba Geological Survey, Manitoba Mineral Resources, and our Manitoba Rocks! mineral education/awareness program, has a fun & exciting new geosciences educational learning tool we’d like to notify science teachers about — across Manitoba! I am connecting with you today to solicit the assistance of the Science Teachers Association of Manitoba (STAM) and invite you to let us know how you might help us to ‘get the word out’ about our ‘DIG IT!’  geology card deck! The deck features over 40 minerals and rocks of Manitoba and is a unique geoscience collection. Students (and kids of all ages) can also discover more about our province’s rich mineral resources by playing the DIG IT! card game! It’s all about encouraging Manitobans to explore and learn more about the importance and value of our province’s 2nd largest primary resource sector – minerals and petroleum.

Here’s our plan:  on Global Teacher’s Day, October 5th, we would like to invite school science teachers across the province to send us an email requesting their FREE ‘DIG IT!’ deck and Manitoba Rocks! bookmarks, for their schools by contacting us at minesinfo@gov.mb.ca
