The 14th Annual First Nations and Inuit Science Camp took place August 8-15. Once again, MFNERC in partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) selected students from Manitoba to attend the week-long camp. This year it took place at the Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. The annual science camp provides opportunities for students from various First Nation schools across Canada to be actively engaged in scientific learning and be inspired to further pursue science related careers.
The representatives from Manitoba included five students that were accompanied by a chaperone; two from Gods Lake Narrows and three students from Little Saskatchewan First Nation. The camp activities included traditional science activities, local cultural activities, and university science & technology activities.
Students from Gods Lake Narrows were Paige Okemaw and Meadow Nasee, and chaperone Michelle Nasee.
Students from Little Saskatchewan First Nation were Travis Shorting, Deston Desmarais, Keaton Shorting, with chaperone Wilson Fallorin. (And a huge thank you to Mr. Fallorin who provided the information and photo!)
