Dr. Lisa Lunney Borden

Learning from Mi’kmaw Elders: Stories of mathematics teaching and learning in Mi’kma’ki


In this session Dr. Borden will share stories from her research and teaching life that have been influenced by the knowledge learned from time spent alongside Elders and knowledge keepers within the Mi’kmaw community in Mi’kma’ki or what we now call Nova Scotia. Through a series of moments, she will share how her philosophy for decolonizing mathematics education has been shaped and how this in turn shapes her mathematics teaching.

School children exploring insects

STEM Storytime – Insects


Join Let's Talk Science Outreach to read Cathryn Sill's book, "About Insects" and complete a hands-on science activity about insects and caterpillars!

In this activity, students will learn about insects and their large biodiversity. They will use everyday materials to make caterpillars and "feed" them and watch them grow!

For this activity, students will need:
