Our second field trip of the year was to go to Britannia Mine Museum on the Sea-to-Sky Highway. After studying several types of mining in class, we were super prepared and ready for this trip. The students once again did a great job representing our school and made myself and the other parent volunteers very proud.
After seeing the Mine and learning what we could there, we drove to the nearby water treatment plant and learned what is happening to waste from the mining process. We even got to wear goggles and use some chemicals to extract minerals from the water ourselves! Very cool.
