Brent Elliot (standing) speaks about Texas' mineral resources
On July 15, the Bureau partnered with the Texas Mining and Reclamation Association to provide a professional development workshop for K–12 teachers. Twenty-three dedicated educators from various locations in Texas, ranging from El Paso to Magnolia, toured the Austin Core Repository, learned about geologic core samples, and listened to presentations by Bureau staff. Linda Ruiz McCall coordinated the event and provided the attendees with an overview of geologic cores. Brent Elliott spoke to the teachers about the mineral resources of Texas. Dallas Dunlap and John Andrews showed the group some of the amazing 3D visualizations created for Bureau research. Teachers also visited the Bureau bookstore and stocked up on rock kits, geologic maps, and books to take back to their classrooms. The day ended with a tour of the Texas Advanced Computing Center led by Melyssa Fratkin.
