Science, Engineering, Engineering & Mathematics Teaching in Rural Areas using Cultural Knowledge Systems (STEM TRACKS) engages Iñupiaq people in northern Alaska in all aspects of curricular development and tests the Cultural Connections Process Model for community engagement. Our advisors in Kotzebue, Alaska selected the theme topic (snow), told us what is important about the topic, and provided content to support curriculum development. Pilot testing recently concluded. Find out how we made it happen during the pandemic, and what we have learned so far!
