Aboriginal youth in the North will have a chance to learn about science and technology without heading south.


Stony Rapids is one of only a few communities across Canada to be chose to host a science camp for Native youth this summer.


The youth will take part in Actua’s Aboriginal Outreach Program.


It’s designed to dispel stereotypes surrounding science, engineering and technology.


Actua also teaches youth skills and attitudes to explore science as part of their everyday lives.


In the 3 years since Actua launched the program, more than 100 communities across Canada have hosted this type of event.


This year, more than 2,500 youth will be taking part.
