Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

To directly bring accessible and engaging STEM education to Indigenous youth from Grades 1 to 12,  InSTEM works with communities, school boards, and other organizations to deliver workshops. 

InSTEM focuses on intertwining traditional knowledge with Western perspectives of STEM; emphasizing a two-eyed approach to education. If you would like to book an InSTEM workshop or would like to inquire about a future collaboration, please fill out the form above.
