We Do Workshops!

Workshops related to the use of these kits can be arranged.  The workshop is  1.5 hours long and can be held after school.  We would prefer a minimum of 8 teachers with a maximum of 30.  Workshops are free as are the resources.   If you would like to attend a workshop and there isn’t one being held in your school division please contact us at education@saskmining.ca  to see if there will be one held nearby.
