IndigeSTEAM

STEM  = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  When we want to talk about the connections of STEM to social enterprise, humanities, arts, innovation, entrepreneurship and more, we put an 'A' into STEM to get STEAM. The A can reflect Arts, Architecture and Agriculture – all areas that Indigenous peoples have been innovators in for thousands of years.  Our mission is to create culturally safe and relevant STEAM Outreach programming for Indigenous youth success. IndigeSTEAM is led by Indigenous STEM professionals and educators working together.

To find out more about each of the individual programs, click on their individual image in the slider above or follow the links. 

Watch here for the things that we do together.  We like to think of it as Two-Eyed Seeing in every direction so we can walk together to ensure that Indigenous youth succeed.
