Second edition of the CÉGEP A-Laurendeau's Northern Project
June 17, 2019

For the second edition of the Northern Project, six students enrolled at Cégep André-Laurendeau in Chemistry and Biology Completion Project stayed in Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik, Nunavik. An internship from June 4 to June 17, 2019 was conducted in partnership with the CEN to apply the knowledge acquired during this course. The two chemistry students focused on the detection and extraction of contaminants from car batteries, specifically lead and sulphuric acid batteries. On the biological side, the students focused on the inauguration of a community greenhouse containing two growing systems, one hydroponic and the other in soil enriched with mycorrhizae. After designing and building both systems from recycled materials, the community was invited to visit the community greenhouse at an open house on Wednesday, June 12. The knowledge acquired about hydroponic and enriched soil plant cultivation was transferred to the community to enable them to maintain a successful community greenhouse. The residents of Whapmagoostui - Kuujjuarapik have also been made more aware of the environmental importance of battery recycling. The students greatly appreciated their experience and thanked the CEN for their warm welcome.
