Goal

With our world being assaulted by pollutants and plastics, this project will be designed to help students understand the concerns of environmental issues with an emphasis on micro plastics in our water supply. 

 

What will be done with my students

A variety of science experiments and informative lessons will help students understand how our world can be saved. The main plan is to show the micro plastics in our water and how to end this problem (SC.912.L.17.16). Students will take water samples from a variety of sources and place them through a reverse osmosis filter. A series of experiments designed to help students understand how we know plastic pollution is affecting our world in water and soil (SC.912.E.7.7) will be conducted. Monitoring Policy decisions and their effects will also be one of our main goals (SC.912.L.17.13) 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will be able to conduct tests just like an environmental scientist. A better understanding of how the interrelated carcinogens effect our world will be seen by our students. Students will then be able to post their findings in Canvas and other social media.
