Back to the Earth, Year 3

NSF Awards: 1139657

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

Back to the Earth (BTTE) is a community-based youth education partnership between the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, Spokane Tribe, and the University of Idaho. The BTTE project aims to develop and deliver culturally-rich science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning opportunities to students in grades 4-7 on the Coeur d’Alene and Spokane Indian Reservations. All lessons and activities will engage youth in the place and the local community through the context of local values and culture as they relate to STEM.
The following objectives will be studied through research:
● Increase student knowledge in (1) science and technology content, and (2) use of inquiry skills;
● Enhance student attitude toward (1) science, technology, and engineering content, and (2) science, technology, and engineering careers;
● Enhance community partnerships for developing an Indigenous STEM workforce.
