  ENGINEERS WANTED!
Get ready for a team of real engineers to help you discover how mines in North America turn one ton of ore into six pounds of copper. Students will connect with engineers through a LIVE internet channel and have a chance to ask questions in "real-time." Each week students will conduct amazing mining-related STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) experiments. The program will conclude with MineZone Discovery Day at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix at no cost for all participating students and their families.
