EDUCATION & OUTREACH
The Legendary Sky Project
The Legendary Sky Project is an Astronomy North Society education and outreach initiative dedicated to the collection and preservation of northern sky knowledge and heritage in the Northwest Territories.
Launched in 2010, this project has focused on raising awareness of the nature, culture and wonder of Canada’s northern sky and the development of tools to enhance curriculum at the community level.
The first phase of the project (2010-2013) resulted in the establishment of a new northern sky knowledge and heritage database in the Northwest Territories, setting the stage for the development of regional and community-specific learning modules.
The Legendary Sky Learning Modules are tools that promote experiential learning with elders and help to connect youth to both modern and traditional knowledge of the sky with the support of teachers, parents, elders and partners at the community level.
If your school is interested in being part of The Legendary Sky Project please contact the Astronomy North Society today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
