Independent Study to Fight Malnutrition

School: Kennebunk High School  Amount: $550.00  Applicant: Alan Carp, STEM Coordinator

Over the 2016-2017 school year, a student, working in an independent study, has developed a long shelf-life, nutrient-rich powder derived from potato peelings, which might be used to help fight malnutrition in the developing world. This grant allows the  purchasing of equipment to utilize biology and chemistry  to produce, test, and preserve the nutritional supplement.
