Honors Students set off on Arctic Adventure for Three Weeks

Theresa Ewa and Kimberly Nguyen are among 6 UIC students who will be participating in the Northwest Passage Project, a historic, educational excursion across the remote Canadian Arctic. Ewa, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, and Nguyen, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, will aboard a polar vessel for three weeks from August 23 to September 13 and will learn about polar science and climate change, while conducting Arctic field research with ocean scientists. Follow their Facebook Live broadcasts from sea!

Dr. Miquel Gonzalez-Meler, a professor of biological sciences and Honors Faculty Fellow, is the project's UIC faculty liaison. He is excited for the students and their "immersive, one-of-a-kind experience."
