Sask Polytech, IMII develop resources, training for teachers and Indigenous learners

September 29, 2021
Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the International Minerals Innovation Institute have partnered to develop virtual resource and training opportunity hubs for teachers and Indigenous learners. The two partners have developed an Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) hub and a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) hub. Sask Polytech will also be providing a digital mining bootcamp for Indigenous youth from grades 7 and 8. “The goal of these innovative and collaborative programs is to encourage Indigenous students to engage in an education, and eventually a career, in the ICT or STEM sectors,” said Sask Polytech President Dr Larry Rosia. “Our team plans to engage with a minimum of 200 teachers through the resource hub and 200 students through the digital bootcamps this academic year.” Sask Polytech ()
