Indigenous Science Network

13 October 1998

I know that I volunteered to set up a network for us when the special interest group met at CONASTA. I found I couldn't do it from work and my home computer hasn't been working too well, so those are my excuses and I'm sticking to them.

The CONASTA proceedings have been published and when we find some spare time we'll send them out. The NT people should have already received their copies. There are several papers from the conference that have been printed, including Glen Aikenhead, Theo Read, Mark Linkson and the one by Jane Anlezark, Di Uibo and me. There's a workshop paper by Robyn Hurley about an Aboriginal maths program which I don't think was actually presented. Mark's been asked to submit his paper to the Australian Science Teachers Journal - I'm not sure where he's up to in that process.

You'll see on the header that there's a few people on this list. They were all at the special group meeting. If you think of any others who might be interested in anything we do, let me know and I'll add them in. Because of the oddities of different systems, it may not be possible for you to send information to everybody else on the list. If that's the case, send it to me in the first place and I'll forward it to everybody.

For your first task, why don't you send us a brief description of who you are and what you do. This will be a check to see if the system is working, if it's getting to everybody and remind us who each of us is.
