First Nations University of Canada Receives National Recognition for Health and Science Summer Camp
The First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) is celebrating some unexpected national recognition for its work in engaging children in learning about health and sciences. FNUniv received the “Making Friends with Science” award at Actua’s national conference last Friday. Actua, a national charitable organisation that is focused on engaging youth who are typically underrepresented and underserved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
“I am delighted to congratulate FNUniv Health and Science Camp on winning the 2013 Actua Make Friends with Science Award,” affirmed Jennifer Flanagan, Actua Chief Executive Officer. “Their exceptional photos and media coverage tell the great story of how experiences like these can influence children to make positive choices about their future careers that include STEM.”
