Ferus NGF Sponsors the Yukon Chamber of Mines' 2020
WHERE Challenge for Students
May 20, 2020
YUKON STUDENTS CHALLENGED TO TURN THEIR IMAGINATIONS LOOSE
The WHERE Challenge asks students the questions: What on Earth is in your stuff and where on Earth it does it come from?
Students are asked to pick a favourite object in their home, identify one or more non-renewable Earth resources needed to make the object, and then guess where they think the resources come from.
Answers can be submitted in the form of an essay, poem, song, painting, poster, video or whatever other medium the student chooses.
Ferus NGF is very proud to be sponsoring the WHERE Challenge because it is a creative and engaging way to teach youth about resources and geology.
We strongly believe in the value education and the importance of supporting and engaging with the communities in which we operate.
During last year's Yukon Mining Week, Ferus NGF sponsored and participated in the Discovery Camp, situated at the S.S, Klondike National Historic Site.
Throughout the day, our team interacted with over 500 youth, demonstrating the basic properties of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Along with an education on LNG, students received Ferus Frisbees, Freezies – which to their amazement were frozen right on the spot using LNG – and other giveaways.
To this year's contestants, we wish them the best of luck and we look forward to interacting with the community in the years to come!
