Plastic Project

A Change of Behavior

Students can do more than memorizing who invented plastic.

They have the potential to come up with solutions and take meaningful actions. During this project students will learn to create their own bioplastics, but they'll also learn that the carbon footprint of a paper bag is even worse than a re-usable plastic bag. That 80% of tap water has microplastics and that the plastic soup is not really tasty. During their journey they'll be able to be creative, will have to think critically, collaborate on a global scale and solve real-world problems. Oh. And be beware. There may be empathy in your classroom. Bring the world into your classroom.
