MTBMA Sponsors Educational Rock Kits 
 
MEC (Minerals Education Coalition) staff and local volunteers distributed rock kits and educational resources to the attending educators at the NTA Conference held on October 5-7, 2017 at the Baltimore Convention Center. 
 
Between September 29-October 1, MEC (Minerals Education Coalition) staff and volunteers handed out 1,000 free rock and mineral kits to teachers at the National Science Teachers Association Regional Conference in Baltimore, MD. The “Totally Awesome Classroom Rock Kits” featured samples of ten rocks and minerals such as quartzite, siltsone, and bituminous coal. Teachers from 26 states attended the booth. 
 
Katie Kosloski of Luck Stone led the volunteer committee of SME members that developed the rock kits with donations from regional mining and mineral companies and associations in the region. 
 
Katie appreciated our contribution for the rock kits: “We truly appreciate your generous donation to help support the assembly and distribution of 1,000 rock kits! The booth was extremely successful and all of the teachers were so very thankful for the resources and knowledge around mining, construction, and geology in which they can use in their classrooms“. The kits will be on display in our office.
