The ninth annual Saskatchewan First Nations Science Fair was held earlier this week to enable aboriginal students from grades 6 to 12 to display their knowledge of science and math from a traditional indigenous perspective or Western perspective or both, media reports said.

Bobby Cameron, chief of Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN), said that through this Science Fair the First Nations kids had an opportunity to experience the thrill of discovery and a better understanding of a subject by testing their hypothesis.
Around 130 young science representatives from across the province were invited to represent their schools. The top four students will compete in a Canada-wide science fair.
A post by Constant Reminder on the facebook account of Bobby Cameron reads,
“Hello CRFriends and CRFamily, it was a wonderful time in Saskatoon. Thank You 2017 FSIN Science Fair for inviting us to share an amazing evening with You All!! We also seen our good friend, Bobby Cameron, Chief of FSIN. CRLove!! CRLaugh!! CRLive!!”
The education and training secretariat of FSIN had been helping to organize an average of 30 mobile science symposiums annually at First Nation schools.
Cameron said education was the key to building healthier people and communities and added that it was important that young people complete their education in the area of science and technologies.
“The FSIN is proud of our young people as they apply their inherent and treaty right to education when embarking on meaningful careers,” Said Cameron, CBCNews reports said.
