Pinnguaq Association, a not-for-profit organization, incorporates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) into unique learning applications that promote storytelling, health, wellness, and growth with rural and remote communities. At its core, Pinnguaq embraces diversity and creates opportunities in order to empower all people.
For their first edition of Pinnguaq’s print and online magazine Root & STEM, Ace’s work is featured in the article Spirit Berries – Beading, Technology, and the Art of Barry Ace by Courtney Milne. Pinnuguq note on their website that “Root & STEM is a free print and online STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) resource to support K-12 educators in teaching digital skills and trends. Each issue will feature articles, activities, and lesson plans with a specific focus on STEAM education through creativity.”
Pinnguaq also explain that “Root & STEM provides a holistic approach to education, merging heart and head while pushing the boundaries for how Canada thinks about science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Our goal is to provide a platform for more diverse STEAM stories, lesson plans, and resources to be shared. Our hope is that educators will see the unique needs of their communities and classrooms reflected in the STEAM stories and resources that we share.”
