Bahamas: FEM STEM Bahamas tours NPEP, views advancements in waste management practices at the landfill

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — In recognition of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on February 11, the New Providence Ecology Park (NPEP) welcomed FEM STEM Bahamas for an exclusive tour of the landfill.

FEM STEM, a youth-based nonprofit organization, aims to educate, empower and equip high school girls to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics opportunities.

The group of girls ages 13 to 18 explored the transformed 160-acre landfill and learned about sustainable waste practices, how NPEP diverts different types of waste from entering the landfill and the business opportunities that can emerge from the waste management industry.

At the site tour held on Saturday, February 6, FEM STEM Founder and President Tyrhonda Glinton noted “the remarkable transformation” made at the landfill in recent years.
