Nyoka is a biotech start-up founded by Paige Whitehead, a UVic Microbiology and Environmental Studies student. She has created a compostable, carbon sequestering glow stick that is powered with bioluminescence. Inspired by her courses in Permaculture Design and Biotechnology, the Nyoka Light Wand is an example of what can be achieved by mixing science with environmental care.
