Motorola Foundation awards grant to teach astronomy to Navajo, Hopi children

from Navajo-Hopi Observer

Twenty teachers from the Navajo and Hopi Native American nations will be participating in Lowell Observatory's Educational Astronomy Program (LEAP) thanks to a generous grant from the Motorola Foundation. LEAP has four main goals: to use astronomy as a vehicle to stimulate interest in science on the part of Navajo and Hopi children; assist teachers of Native American students in learning about astronomy so they can incorporate it in their classrooms; dismiss myths about scientists and encourage children to consider careers in the sciences; and to train new generations of Native American children to become informed consumers of science information. more
