This investigation will focus on the impact microplastics are making on the Gulf Coast. Water and sediment/sand samples will be collected at specific locations along the Gulf Coast and analyzed for microfibers, micro-fragments, and microbeads. Students will be comparing the amount of microplastics in each location, the type of microplastics in each location, and the areas […]
Satellite Workshop Lessons in Development: Pensacola FL 2018
Students will analyze data using statistics to connect human population to the amount of as well as the types of microplastic found in the ecosystems of Antarctica, the Gulf of Mexico and a local fresh water source in order to create a Public Service Announcement to influence their community to reduce the use of plastics.
Students will analyze microplastic data collected in two locations in Antarctica; discover types of microplastics found in the marine environment; represent this data in three types of graphs then draw conclusions from the data.
