Tukisinnik research conference gains momentum

Tukisinnik continues to build momentum.

There are approximately 85 people attending the research conference at the Community hall in Nain today.

According to Tom Sheldon, the Nunatsiavut Governments Director of the Environment Division.

Today’s presentations are setting up for tomorrow’s panel of discussions on research in Nain.

This morning’s events included a presentation from Ken Reimer of the Environmental Sciences Group at the Royal Military College.

Charlotte and Dina Wolfrey did a presentation about “My Word”, a digital storytelling project in Rigolet.

And Trevor Bell of Memorial University talked about natural and social science projects in Nunatsiavut.

The conference continues this afternoon with more presentations at the Community Hall.

They will be followed by a “Bell-Ringer” research round at the Jens Haven Memorial School's gym at 3 pm.

A Research Bingo will be held tonight in the gym.

This will be a unique bingo in which participants will answer research questions to fill in their bingo cards.

The questions will be based on information from booths set up by various researchers in the gym.

Everyone who fills in a card will win a prize, with the big prizes being a GPS Tracker and an IPod Touch.
