About this unit

This unit aims to provide students with an opportunity to work on a project that will deepen their understanding of the plurality and diversity of Indigenous knowledge systems, worldviews, standpoints, and culture in relation to STEM technologies. The project will have a focus on emerging technologies and the respectful blending of Western and Indigenous knowledge systems to enhance project outcomes. Students will work collaboratively in teams and will have a staff member as a ‘facilitator’ whilst working on the project.
