Next Generation studies Microplastics

Five high school young women completed their senior science project on microplastic on sandy beaches this spring.  I spoke with their advisor Emily Gottlieb from LiMPETS where students are encouraged to conduct science experiments and teach those around them.  She had a group of young women that were interested in using my sand crab protocol for finding micro plastic.  I was able to chat with them and give them a little guidance while they ran with it and did an excellent job!  I have included some of the slides from their presentations below.  This group is definitely headed for success.
