Funzeleo’s mining curriculum is an experiential program that provides relevant problem-based activities to help build critical thinking and increase student awareness about minerals, geology, rocks and professions in the mining sector.
Students learn about mineral properties, velocity/density/mass, natural resources and the environment, along with relevant math activities. The students in the mining program also participate in field trips and job-shadow with experienced mentors. The goals of this program are for students to:
We introduce educators to new concepts and techniques for designing instruction in a way that engages and excites students. Before receiving their classroom resources, teachers attend professional development. As part of their training, teachers will complete “True Colours,” VARK, and other personality assessments to help them understand their teaching styles and their impact on students’ learning and academic achievement. We also train teachers to successfully implement science fairs in their schools.
We need financial support to further our efforts.
