Students from the Department of Paper and Bioprocess Engineering teamed up with the Girl Scouts to offer handmade papermaking at the Westcott Street Cultural Fair on Sunday, 13 September 2009. The Fair is a annual, one-day celebration of the diversity of the Westcott Street neighborhood including kids' activities, performing art, a parade, and of course food. More information about the fair can be found at www.westcottfair.org.
PBE Students teamed up with the Girl Scouts of Troop 487 to offer handmade papermaking in the kids' activity area near the branch library. With the help of the Girl Scouts and PBE students, visitors were able to make and decorate sheets of paper from recycled newsprint. This fit directly in with the "Green Theme" of the fair for this year.
