Learning from Indigenous Ways of Knowing is a blog post from Heather Krause at We All Count (a project for equity in data science) which explores "existing ways that Indigenous cultures around the world create knowledge and solve problems with data." The blog is a living document and the team is actively looking for feedback and improvements from the community.

Thanks to the development of affordable, compact, and user-friendly 3D printers, consumer use is booming, particularly in classrooms. 3D printers have become a valuable tool in K-12 classrooms because they inspire creativity and problem-solving by bringing students’ ideas and designs to life. But, as with so many new technologies, there are also unintended safety consequences to consider. Research conducted by Chemical Insights (an Institute of Underwriters Laboratories), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to scientific research, along with researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), found that 3D printers emit ultrafine particles (UFPs) and VOCs during operation. This toolkit will walk you through the research processes, key findings, and health consequences. It also presents best practices for mitigating emissions and maintaining safe and healthy school indoor environments.

New Mexicans and visitors alike, outdoors more often for play and education, we at SFPS have partnered with the Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) to distribute over 1000 EKO passes to 4th graders districtwide. The passes are good for our 4th grade families from the day they take them home from school to August 31, 2020. Each pass is worth $80 to the family and can be used multiple times. We expect to collaborate with the SFNF for several more years distributing these passes through our classrooms.
