SummaryRM@Schools is an initiative and project by the EIT Raw Materials, and aims to explain mining and minerals to society, the common public, especially children and teachers.
Raw MatTERS Ambassadors at schools is an innovative education program to make science education and careers in RM (Raw Materials) attractive for youth, which features active learning by involving students in experiments with RMrelated hands-on educational kits and in communication activities.
