The first goal of this event is focused on inspiring young Indigenous students to see the opportunities for educational and career pathways in the STEM fields. The secondary mandate of this event is to create an opportunity for faculty, staff and alumni of the University of Alberta to learn more about opportunities to engage Indigenous peoples in science and support more Indigenous students to pursue STEM pathways.

This event is being hosted by the Department of Biological Sciences, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, the Office of the Provost and the University of Alberta Senate USchool Program.
