Philosophy and Goals of the Keewatin Regional Science Fair
The 3rd Annual Keewatin Regional Science Fair is a celebration of science with students and teachers of MFNERC-member First Nations schools in northern Manitoba. The Keewatin science fair is under the umbrella of the Manitoba First Nations Science Fair program, which encourages participation of First Nations students at the local, provincial, and national levels.
The science fair program leads to student achievement in the sciences and helps teachers develop and implement an engaging curriculum for students through project-based learning. This year’s theme, “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM),” encourages First Nations youth to see the connections between Traditional Knowledges learned on the land and STEM fields.
The annual Manitoba First Nations Science Fair program explores all things science, and the Keewatin Regional Science Fair will ensure participation by more northern schools.
