'Star Guy' Visits Murdoch

Murdoch MacKay Collegiate
April 17, 2019

Mr. Buck, who is from Opaskwayak Cree Nation, is a science facilitator at the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre, and he incorporates an Indigenous perspective into teaching science. Using his mobile planetarium, he taught the Murdoch students about Cree constellations, such as Wesakaychak and Keewatin.
