Students' solar experiment wins Naval Science Award

(Continued)

Their final report concludes that since ballast-mounted solar panels have no effect on erosion and minimal effect on vegetation, landfills are an optimal location for solar arrays.

One of the side benefits of their field experiment is that Craig and Ryan will now serve as role models for other area high-schoolers with a scientific bent and a concern for the environment.

The Marjot Foundation welcomes applications for environmentally related research from students in grades 9 through 11 at public high schools in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. While private school students may also apply, preference is given to public school students. The maximum funding available for each project selected is $5,000. The application deadline is April 1. For more information on the grant process, email creinisc@mbi.edu or call the foundation office at 508-548-8509.
