Conservation Initiative: Ocean Cleanup

Students did research projects on the garbage that is found in the ocean. They looked into where the garbage comes from, how it affects the life in the ocean, and what is being done to clean up the trash. Students also found that a lot of garbage makes its way into the ocean from various waterways around the world. Students then created a product or device that would retrieve debris from the ocean or prevent it from reaching the ocean. They were asked to consider plants and animals when designing their products.

This Conservation Project was made possible by
Union 52 Benevolent Society.
