Junior Scientists Tour the Exshaw Cement Plant

Sep 12, 2018Education Initiatives

Canmore Daycare Junior Scientists toured the Lafarge Exshaw Cement Plant on August 17, 2018. There was mixed reaction about what stood out the most: some liked getting in the loader bucket, some liked seeing the limestone, others said putting on the safety gear was the best part of the day. Either way, it was a fun experience for the 6-10 year old’s, as you can tell from the photo. Lafarge’s engineering summer students hosted and coordinated a fun afternoon of learning. The Junior Scientists played with different samples of cement ingredients, studied each stage of the production process, heard about the history of the Lafarge plant and had an exciting tour of the quarry that ended in a group photo in the loader.
