Eugene Joseph Elementary has been awarded $5000 to support Science Literacy Week activities starting September 16! They will be installing a weather station and purchasing new Ipad minis to support citizen science activities. Students will be exploring local phenology through participation in IceWatch, PlantWatch, FeederWatch and Pacific Streamkeepers. While they are working on these projects, they will also be translating science vocabulary into Dakelh word lists. These word lists will be included in Tinybop's 2020 app updates, allowing future student cohorts to benefit from their efforts. This is an amazing project, incorporating modern tools and technologies into the transmission of Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK). We can't wait to get started - thank you Science Literacy Week 2019 for your support and encouragement!
