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!
