Dennis Ongahak is from Kugluktuk, Nunavut. Dennis says, “Ocean science is a never ending experience in the world we live in and I would like to know as much as I can to bring back questions the youth are asking in my community.”

Dennis enjoys the company of children because their imagination brings the best out of the world and it doesn't stop them from believing who they can become. “I enjoy encouraging children to explore the world in many different ways that will help them grow and become great innovators.”

Dennis represents Kugluktuk, Nunavut as a Youth Science Ambassador, providing Kugluktuk with knowledge about the ocean. He also works part-time for Recreations Parks Associations of Nunavut (RPAN), providing programs for children in one of the many departments that RPAN has to offer.
