Bar Harbor sponsor values creativity, energy, and expertise of WPI students

Staff members at Acadia National Park, the sponsor of the students’ projects, are on a mission to preserve the park’s natural environment by reducing its levels of congestion, noise, and unnatural light. Collaborating with WPI students energizes the park’s staff and gets them thinking outside the box—creating solutions that will benefit them in ways they hadn’t considered.
