Showcase Tonight for North Coast Innovation Lab

Four masters students have been hard at work with Ecotrust Canada's North Coast Innovation Lab, and tonight they will be showing off their work so far.

Project Manager, Nathan Randall, is excited to be presenting these projects to the local community and hear feedback on the work being done.

"We are having a series of community presentations where the four students will be showcasing the work that they've done and kind of the trajectory of their work. I will also be giving an overview of the North Coast Innovation Lab, explaining what it's all about and how we are trying to make a more resilient community with the community."

Beginning at 7 P-M in the multi-purpose room of Prince Rupert's Coast Mountain College, Randall and his team of masters students will showcase the four innitiatives currently underway, something Randall says is part of the innovation lab's mandate.

"The core mandate of the North Coast Innovation Lab is to help the sharing of new, innovative ideas to create a better community. So one of the ways that we can do that is to have several community events per year that are open to the public that we can share what we're doing, but also learn from people about how we can improve this process and how we can work with other organizations and community members to make the community a better place."

The North Coast Innovation Lab is currently working on projects in conjunction with Redesign Rupert, Hecate Strait Employment Development Society, Coastal Shellfish Corporation, and the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Society and Prince Rupert Lawn and Garden.

The event is free, snacks and refreshments will be provided.
