Presque Isle Students Win Award for Poster Featuring SSI Grass Biomass Project

Three Presque Isle high school students, junior Angela Wang and sophomores Sedona Lucas and Zach Rice, have assisted with research on the University of Maine at Presque Isle’s SSI project “Assessing the Feasibility and Sustainability of Grass Biomass Production in Aroostook County.”  The students became involved in the project as part of UMPI’s Central Aroostook Math and Science Partnership (CAMSP), learning GIS mapping, identifying grasslands, and conducting interviews in the community. Their poster featuring this work was awarded first place in the high school category at the 6th Annual GIS Educators in Maine & MEGUG (Maine GIS Users Group) 2013 Fall Conference.
