OBJECTIVE OF PROJECT
The objective of the pipeline is to develop opportunities for Native American students to participate in geoscience-related education and research. The “pipeline” has three components:
1) An education and research enrichment program for 7-12th grade Native American students which integrates indigenous knowledge into the geosciences as well as a research experience for teachers (RET).
2) An introductory undergraduate geoscience course which integrates indigenous knowledge into the geosciences, uses Native American Art as a vehicle of learning, and acknowledges the learning styles of Native American students.
3) A program to provide research internship opportunities for Native American students.
