EPSCoR Native STEM Education Summit

Kalispell, MT
Lake MacDonald

Montana EPSCoR is hosting a post-conference workshop to further explore STEM education in Indigenous communities. EPSCoR staff, K-12 educators, Tribal College Faculty, and Higher Education Faculty from select jurisdictions are invited to come together to discuss challenges, present best practices, and co-create potential solutions in engaging Indigenous students in STEM disciplines and preparing them to enter the STEM workforce.  We will work to create pathways in collectively impacting the broader participation challenge of Indigenous STEM education and seek ways to involve ourselves in the National Science Foundation’s INCLUDES initiative.  Let us continue our conversation around these issues and strengthen our relationships within Indian Country.

Dr. Aaron Thomas, director of Indigenous Research and STEM Education at the University of Montana, will lead the workshop, to be held in Kalispell, Montana, September 28 - 29, 2018. Space is limited and participants are encouraged to register by June 30, 2018.
