Science Fair Project Gone Wrong

Bomb Squad Destroys School Science Project

PORTLAND, Ore. — A Portland bomb squad destroyed a science project Saturday after they received reports of a suspicious package.


Authorities said a box with a wire and screws sticking out of it was found at the Mittleman Jewish Community Center on Southwest Capitol Highway. A note posted on the box said, “Do not touch.”


Police called in a bomb squad as a precaution. The bomb squad then blew up the device, but later learned it was a school science project.


A suspicious package in Woodburn also turned out to be harmless Saturday. Police received reports of an unusually-placed box Saturday morning at the Telecare Recovery Center. Three houses were evacuated before the bomb squad declared the package safe.
