BDN Reports on Bangor High Student’s Science Fair Win with Help of UMaine

State science fair winner and Bangor High School student Mary Butler told the Bangor Daily News she had never been in a science fair before working with University of Maine students and faculty on her project, “Nanofibrillated Cellulose as the Potential Component of a Low-cost Water Filtration System.” Butler said she worked with UMaine chemical engineering graduate student Finley Richmond on the filter project over the summer, and the collaboration was arranged by University of Maine Chemical and Biological Engineering Professor Doug Bousfield. Butler’s project won first place in the “Energy, Transportation and Environmental Science” category, as well as best in show at the Maine State Science and Engineering Fair on March 23 in Bar Harbor.
