Schools on Board - 2014 Field Program

Participants in the 2014 field program will join the final leg of ArcticNet's 2014 science expedition in the community of Kugluktuk, a coastal town located near the mouth of the Coppermine River and on the Coronation Gulf. Upon boarding the CCGS Amundsen on September 25 in Kugluktuk, NU, Schools on Board participants will sail through the famed Northwest Passage travelling east through Peel Sound and Lancaster Sound along Baffin Island to Iqaluit, NU. During their time on board, participants will be integrated in sampling operations, listen to lectures and participate in workshops, all the while travelling through the most sought after sea route in history.

In addition to spending time on the ship, participants will visit both the community of Kugluktuk and Iqaluit, NU where they will have the opportunity to experience northern culture, meet community youth and leaders, and witness the beauty the land offers.

Due to the cancellation of the 2013 Schools on Board field program, schools selected in 2013 were given priority to participate in 2014 and no formal call for applications was made.
