First Light Initiative

First Light was established so that more Aboriginal youth of all ages could be exposed to telescopes, astronomy and the wonders that fill the sky, thereby invigorating their desire to learn and to engage and explore with science and technology, while also learning their cultural traditions and indigenous knowledge about the sky.


You can spark that moment when a child discovers their love for science, technology, engineering and math. Help us inspire students to find their passion for science and life-long learning.
