Science North has developed a digital mining game called Mine Evolution in partnership with the Canadian Insitute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM). This game is available for free through the Google Play and App stores and is downloadable for PC.
As a part of this project, bilingual lesson plans were developed for teachers to use in the classroom, with pan-Canadian curriculum links. Each lesson features a hands-on activity and a short mining mini game. These lesson plans introduce students to the diversity of careers in the mining industry.
