Minerals and Energy Education
OresomeResources is a collaborative educational initiative supported by the minerals and energy industry in Australia.
This collaboration is represented by the Queensland Resources Council, Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia, Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), MCA Victoria Division, MCA Northern Territory Division, NSW Minerals Council, South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy, Tasmanian Minerals Council, Australian Coal Association and Australian Uranium Association.
These non-government organisations represent companies that have an interest in exploration, mining, minerals processing, gas and energy production.
To support teachers and students in the teaching and learning of the minerals and energy industry the collaboration has developed or sourced hundreds of educational resources.
These resources can be accessed on-line by all interested web users at no cost for educational purposes only.
The resources are aligned to the Australian curriculum and can be utilised to support its implementation.
They have been developed by teachers for teachers to provide syllabus support to the key learning areas of Science, Maths, Technology and the Social Sciences.
To further support teachers and pre service teachers, Oresome Resources offers an on-line and face-to-face Teacher Professional Development (TPD) Program.
This program provides an opportunity for teachers and pre-service teachers to become familiar with the latest developed resources and teaching strategies which can be used to engage students in their learning of curriculum based and industry contextualised topics.
To view all TPD workshops please see our calendar
