Roughly 30 Aboriginal students from from across the province are taking part in a health science camp this week.


The event is being hosted by the First Nations University of Canada and is intended to get Native teenagers thinking about becoming veterinarians, engineers and public health inspectors.


Coordinator Chrystal Whitehawk says experts will talk to the youths on a variety of subjects — including native herbs, mathematics and environmental protection.


Whitehawk says they hope the teens realize that science can be fun.


The students will travel to sites around central and southern Saskatchewan, including Wanuskewin Heritage Park, the Qu’Appelle Valley and Regina.
