Donation Information

Once again, TACA has teamed up with the Texas Mining & Reclamation Association (TMRA) on their Industrial Minerals Teacher Workshop. We need support from members in the means of teaching materials, meal funds, lodging funds, etc. Sponsor a teacher for this week-long workshop with a contribution of $3000, $1500, $1000 or $500.

In-kind donations are also accepted (e.i.-restaurant gift cards, learning materials, hosting a plant tour in the San Antonio area, company promotional items). All expenses are paid for each teacher to attend the workshop.

Please consider contributing to the Industrial Minerals Teacher Workshop Scholarship Program. 100% of your donation will go directly to the teacher scholarship program. Go to for more information.

These 5-day workshops provide science-based information to help educate students about the availability, importance, development and use of our natural resources while protecting our environment. The attendees tour operating mining facilities, visit reclamation areas, hear from industry experts and participate in hands-on labs. These activities are designed to help students use critical thinking skills while applying earth science facts to real-life situations. Designed to be used in grades 4-12, all activities are TEKS and STAAR correlated.

Workshop participants receive the curriculum, geologic samples, additional materials and equipment needed for use in the classroom. Teachers will also receive Professional Development hours:
45 hours SBEC approved
40 hours TEEAC credit
12 hours Gifted & Talented
