What can Aboriginal astronomy tell us about the night sky? How is our native flora used as bush medicine? What can we learn about sustainable living from 60 000+ years of Indigenous culture? Find out the answers to these questions and more during the Indigenous Science Experience Online.
The Indigenous Science Experience Online will consist of a series of workshops and webinars that will run through National Science Week. The sessions will showcase a wide range of Indigenous and Western STEM presented by Indigenous secondary students, Elders and community members and STEM outreach providers from various organisations.
Please go to: https://nisep.org.au/indigenous-science-experience/ to see the sessions that are currently open for registrations.
This is a free online event but registrations are limited. This is a live online event ONLY: it will not be distributed as a recording.
Since 2012, the Indigenous Science Experience at the Redfern Community Centre has been highlighting the value of traditional and contemporary Indigenous knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and the relevance of science to our everyday lives. In 2021, our online format will continue this tradition.
This National Science Week event is organised by the National Indigenous Science Education Program (NISEP), Macquarie University, and Redfern Community Centre. It is made possible through the support of Inspiring Australia and grant funding from the Australian Government.
