Grade 11 and 12 students are invited to join us at AME Roundup held at the Vancouver Convention Centre East (Pan Pacific) to explore the breadth of careers within the mining industry. This program is sponsored by Teck. Registration deadline (revised to): Friday January 18.
Early career professionals from several fields in the industry will share stories of the their interests, education and career path with the students. They will be joined by professional geologist, Patrick McAndless, who will share his insight on career development. MineralsEd partner-teacher Bruce Kiloh will facilitate this program. Students will be accompanied by volunteers, most of them post-secondary students and young professionals in related fields, as they explore the large conference trade show with representatives from the exploration companies, mining companies, and many technical supply and service businesses that are part of the mineral development sector. Students will also enjoy learning how to pan for gold with Yukon Dan.
