This session applies extensive research with Indigenous peoples, including youth, to learning outcomes for Science 10 & Experiential Science 30 in NWT and Alberta. Educators will be given the tools to incorporate Indigenous knowledge, connecting learning about scientific topics to Indigenous histories, lands, languages, and cultures in vital ways. We welcome all science teachers, from those well-versed in Indigenous knowledge to those who are new to the concept!
