Science Fair Bound!

The Boston Harbor Association’s “Harbor Bound” education program, done in conjunction with the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, introduces inner city high school students to environmental and water quality issues in Boston Harbor as well as related employment opportunities. This innovative, free program allows high school students to learn first-hand about Boston Harbor from Harbor professionals.

Last spring a group of students from the Umana Middle School in East Boston toured Deer Island for Harbor Bound.  One of the students was so fascinated with Deer Island and the process that she chose to do her science fair project on Bay State Fertilizer, a product generated at NEFCO’s Quincy Plant from Deer Island sludge.  The project was well received and is now headed off to the City-Wide Science Fair for the City of Boston.
