The Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources believes that everyone should have an opportunity to learn how we use minerals in our lives and where they come from, what modern mining really is and which professional opportunities it offers. 

Chris from Lowell Institute shares some super fun videos to help us learn about minerals.
