ARE’s learning opportunities for students extend beyond the classroom. Every year we bring a group of Minor Miners, Energy Einsteins and Resource Super Force students to the annual Alaska Miners Association and Resource Development Council conventions. These events engage students with industry professionals and give them insight into career opportunities.
These face-to-face conversations with the biggest players in the industry allow students to ask questions, network and learn what it takes to be successful. Students leave with a greater knowledge of the impact of resources on Alaska’s economy, families and future.
Minor Miners are grade and middle schoolers learning about mining.
Energy Einsteins are grade and middle schoolers exploring energy.
The Resource Super Force is a group of high school students who attend resource-related events.
