The Tla'amin Nation have lived in British Columbia's Sunshine Coast region for thousands of years. Callysto is pleased to partner with the Nation to create the learning materials you'll use in this online workshop. In particular, you'll learn about the Tla'amin Nation's fish trapping practices and the impact of greedy harvesting on fish and the nations who depend on it through math and code. If you haven’t coded before, that's ok! Callysto data scientist Laura Gutierrez-Funderburk will lead you through the activities.
