Congratulations to first-year Environmental Technology Program students David Anavilok, who was recently named as this year's recipient of the NorthMart Environmental Technology Scholarship!
Students in Arviat came out for the Arviat Film Society's Science Night with the Nunavut Research Institute this week. We'd like to thank our visiting researchers Frank and Karina from the School of Social Work, University of British Columbia and Amanda, Dani and Chris (absent from photo) from Trent University. Thanks to everyone who came out, showing our youth that an education in science and research can lead to a whole world of opportunities!
"Studying where you live and want to teach makes sense and would solve most worries about housing and leaving the family. NTEP would become more attractive and retention would improve."
Nanisiniq Arviat History Project Youth Curtis Konek and Jordan Konek as they continue to document traditional Inuit knowledge in their hometown of Arviat, Nunavut while encouraging local youth to take an interest in film, media and digital skills development.
It's not often youth get an opportunity to participate in scientific research that is, quite literally, out of this world. It's an opportunity 14-year-old Ethan Tassiuk of Arviat, Nunavut is really looking forward to.
