Grant funds science programs for tribal pupils

From Staff Report

The University of Idaho has received a $1.1 million National Science Foundation grant to help expose students from the Coeur d’Alene and Spokane tribes to hands-on learning through watershed and health studies.

The three-year program targets fourth- through sixth-grade students through after-school and summer activities. The curriculum incorporates native culture with projects that expose students to additional learning in math, science, technology and engineering.

The University of Idaho Extension is a partner in the project, along with both tribes and the UI’s faculty in curriculum and instruction.
