Science North has partnered with the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network and TD Bank to support outreach science programs for Indigenous audiences.

TD Bank provided $300,000 while APTN provided $85,000 to both bring science to Northern First Nation communities and bring students to Science North.

APTN CEO Jean La Rose says success will be measured by interest shown by the youth.

VP of Branch Banking for TD, Andy Pilkington says this will look to get youth involved in science, technology and engineering.

A portion of the funds will also go towards the renewal of the TD Canada Trust Toddler Treehouse in Science North.
