An opening ceremony for the 2010 Nurturing American Tribal Undergraduate Research and Education (NATURE) Summer Camp at NDSU is scheduled for Monday, June 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Union Plains room. A rededication of the Sacred Grandmother Earth's Gifts of Life Garden will be held before the luncheon.
NATURE is a North Dakota EPSCoR-sponsored education outreach project that aims to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education among North Dakota tribal college and high school students and to build a pathway for the pursuit of careers in STEM disciplines.
NATURE builds on activities of a long-term collaboration between North Dakota tribal colleges, NDSU and the University of North Dakota. Project participants include students and faculty from tribal colleges and high schools and faculty from NDSU and UND.
Parking is available in the E visiting parking lot located next to the Civil and Industrial Engineering Building. A map is available at www.ndsu.edu/images/buildings/maps/map.residencedining.pdf
