Two Portland middle school students behind app win awards

Sep 27, 2017

Gulf of Maine Research Institute Chief Education Officer Leigh Peake has agreed to meet with Lainey and Addie to discuss the app. “Seems to me, getting fishermen to use the app would be really pretty cool.” Peake is prepping Lainey and Addie for a meeting with scientists where they will share the Marine Debris Tracker app.

“This couldn’t be a better example of what happens when kids take the ball and run with it. Beach debris isn’t something that GMRI works on, but we have a whole host of people who care deeply about the ocean and I think will be happy to get activated on work on behalf of the girls to spread the news.”
