Indigenous Science

For engineering, science is always the foundation of our work, either as an explanation of what we develop, or as the impetus for us to investigate a new concept to its application.

The area of Indigenous Science is a rich area of research, as it involves talking to different people around the country to present what their knowledge was about fire stick burning, medicine, tool making and resins.
