The Plastic Analysis Program is a curriculum and DVD set that grade 6-12 teachers may use to engage students in an environmental survey of plastic pollution in their local waters, streets and beaches. Students will sweep parking lots, sieve water bodies and scoop sand from beaches to collect their samples, which will later be screened for plastic debris of different sizes and types.
These hands-on activities mimic the scientific work of the Algalita Marine Research Institute (AMRI). AMRI research protocols can be found in this curriculum for college-level plastic analysis.
Engage your students in real science that can make a real difference in your community. DVD format only.
