Exploring Native Science
Engblom-Bradley, Claudette; Reyes, Maria Elena

Summertime in Alaska offers students many options for science projects. The brief season offers an opportunity to explore plant life, wildlife, environmental phenomena, and various other science and social science topics. Most of the research conducted at the camp could not be done during students' regular academic year due to Alaska's harsh winter conditions--including seven months of snow. In this article, the authors share their experiences as site coordinators and counselors at this special summer camp that brings Alaska Native Elders into the teaching process.
