Aurora College has received $602K from Suncor Energy Foundation to strengthen Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education across the Northwest Territories. This funding will support the Aurora Research Institute’s STEM Outreach Team over the next four years to bring STEM programming to youth in small communities and promote the importance of STEM education. “The substantial support from the Suncor Energy Foundation […] empowers our teams to further excel in providing exceptional education and mentorship,” said Aurora Research Institute VP of Research Joel McAlister. “By engaging young students in the North with hands-on learning experiences and reinforcing cultural values, we are shaping a brighter future throughout the Northwest Territories.”
