Enhancing Indigenous Themes in a Teacher Education STEAM Course
Dr. Robert Campbell
Dr. Sumer Seiki
This grant funding will be used to support the inclusion of Indigenous themes into a STEAM course (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) in UBCO’s Teacher Education program. A portion of funding will be used to provide honoraria for teachers and Elders from the Syilx community whose expertise includes sustainable practices, Indigenous art, and Indigenous cosmology. The remainder of the funds will be used to provide student transportation and admission to the Okanagan Science Centre in Vernon to view the Indigenous Skies presentation, and, also, to visit the Syilx Winter house in Komasket Park in the North Okanagan.
