Nunavut Research Institute

Today we met with Rick Armstrong, head of the Nunavut Research Institute, Iqaluit, Nunavut. Discussion on all the programs he is running out of Iqaluit. Great facts: minerals so rich in iron (70+) that you can melt them, oil minerals that burn when you light them... very intersting for all ages. Consequences on the future of the region?
We also visited the lab of Dr. Allison Rutter who explained to us the analyses of contaminated soil samples she is conducting around here. Very interesting for all of us... much much more to come on the science side...
