The American Indian Math and Science Society students attended a 3 day workshop hosted at the University of Oklahoma, at the South Central Climate Science Center. The American Indian Math & Science Society (AIMSS) is designed to provide enrichment activities for middle school and high school (7th, 8th and 9th grade) American Indian students from rural Oklahoma schools. AIMSS goal is to address the disparity in the numbers between between white and American Indian students in math and sciences disciplines. The students learned about sustainability and did exercises to learn about flood plain management and soil adsorption and recharge, climate change among many other science and math topics. April Taylor, Sustainability Scientist and Tribal Liaison for the SC CSC planned and participated extensively in the workshop.
