Talk: Multiverse, Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley

Multiverse at the University of California, Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory seeks to connect with people's sense of wonder. We facilitate making personal ties to science and the learning process in order to, ultimately, bring the richness of diversity to science and make science discovery accessible for all. The Indigenous Education Institute (IEI) was created to preserve, protect, and apply Indigenous knowledge for global solutions in the world today. Our work together within Indigenous and other communities around the world provides an exemplar of how both organizations better achieve their missions via partnership.
