Check out Microplastics, Mega Impact by Laurel Zaima, Education Program Assistant, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Join Laurel and explore the science behind microplastics. They have been found everywhere, from Arctic snow to the depths of the Mariana Trench. They are even found in our food webs and our laundry! Laurel will introduce students to exactly what they are, where they can be found, and why we should care about their emergence in multiple aspects of our lives.
