during an open house at the Keating Centre.

One of the student researchers was Nicholas Falconer of Toney River, near Pictou; who is completing his Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary studies in Aquatic Resources and Economics.  Falconer called his research study the “Economic Future of Lobster in the Gulf of Nova Scotia”.
Another researcher was Human Kinetics student Shelbi Kilcollins.  Her project was entitled “Over coming the Dumb Jock Stereotype on Sporting Intelligence and the Conventions of Journalism”.  She argues we need to assess an athlete’s intelligence beyond statistics.
There were more than 80 posters and over a dozen oral presentations of research presented.
