Plastics in the ocean

Save the marine environment from plastic waste

In this project students study the global problem of plastic pollution in our oceans. By applying eduSTEM’s design thinking process, students research and develop an understanding of the causes of plastic pollution in our oceans and the ways that it impacts a range of stakeholders. Having identified the causes of the problem, students then design, prototype, and build a solution that will be provided to a real world audience.
