Teacher at Sea

Émilie Hébert-HouleSOI is pleased to introduce an alumna from the 2009 Antarctic expedition and congratulate her on her newest adventure across the Arctic. Émilie Hérbert-Houle, a teacher and current graduate student at the Université du Québec in environmental research, is embarking on the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent to discover more about Canada’s Arctic Ocean.

Led by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the expedition will total 47 days, and will map Canada’s Extended Continental Shelf in the Arctic Ocean.  Émilie was selected to join the Natural Resources Canada expedition as their Teacher at Sea, documenting the journey and sharing key discoveries from this exciting research project.
