The Canadian Light Source Synchrotron is getting help from a 14 year old Saskatoon high school student.
Daniel Peters will be collecting soil samples in the Canadian Arctic and Western Greenland, as he heads out on a 75 student expedition up north.
Peters says the soil samples will be used for acid rain research at the synchrotron.
Students on Ice is a polar education trip, where students from across the world go on a 13 day trip around the arctic.
Peters says the trip will start in Iqaluit, then head north up along Baffin Island in a Russian icebreaker.
The trip comes back around as they visit the coast of Western Greenland.
