Parkland Indigenous students go to Vancouver

At Science World students participated in numerous hands on scientific activities and had a great time competing in the various stations. There were sections on local species, the human body, physics, Ripley's Believe it or Not, etc. At the Museum of Anthropology, students were exposed to artefacts of local Indigenous cultures as well as a number of other cultures. Exhibits were immersive and the Museum was hosting a collaborative Coast Salish weaving project that students were able to see in progress. During this experience students were able to explore local culture as well as their own cultural heritages. A great time was had by all.
