Kids Dig It!
The "Jewel of the Desert" simulated mine at the McCaw School of Mines located next to McCaw STEAM Academy is where kids come to learn about mining, the history of mining and the importance of mining in Nevada.
It's a fun, hands on field trip experience.
Volunteers conduct the tours along with our "Mighty Miners" students from McCaw STEAM Academy.
The tours for school groups are two-hour tours from 10:00 a.m. to noon weekdays throughout the school year.
