Microplastics – A Major Problem?
Students will analyze data collected from an actual research excursion in Antarctica. Students will apply knowledge learned about ocean currents, gyres, and garbage patches, to make inferences about the presence of microplastics in Antarctica. Students will address the problem of microplastics and design a solution on a school level to raise awareness of the threat of plastics in the oceans.
