Fort William First Nation woman nominated for academic award

Fort William First Nation resident and St. Patrick High School alumni Kaylib Tremblay has been recognized for her work during her final year of studies at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Tremblay and fellow recent SAIT chemical laboratory technology graduate Rica Contreras were nominated for the Capstone Project of the Year Award, which is presented annually by the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta.

Finalist’s entry shows hope for water

The scourge of plastic particle waste is so ubiquitous in our oceans, lakes and farmers fields, it often seems like an unsolvable conundrum. It’s a good thing there are people like Kaylib Tremblay who recognize the scientific challenge, but are nevertheless undaunted by it. The 23-year-old Thunder Bay lab-tech worker was among the finalists in an Alberta technological competition for shared work on a vacuum and filtering device that could one day be used to remove tiny plastic materials from seawater.
