Students return from 'life-changing' Arctic Expedition

Eighty-seven students from all over the continent returned to Ottawa yesterday after taking a trip to northern Canada and Greenland.

As part of the "Students on Ice Exhibition," the students between the ages of 14 and 19 spent two weeks learning about Indigenous Inuit Culture and about the environment they stayed in.

The students shared stories of the people they met and what they learned at a Welcome Home event at the Canadian Museum of Nature this morning.

Michaela Norgren is a student at Immaculata High School.

"I came out learning so much more than I ever thought I'd ever learn and experiencing so many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and life-change events," Michaela said. "This trip was so amazing and indescribable."

The students were joined by musicians Kathleen Edwards and Ian Tamblyn who taught the kids song writing workshops while they were on their "floating hotel," a ferry that took the students from destination to destination.
