Plastics, plastics everywhere…

Activity: OtherTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Festival/Exhibition


Plastic is fantastic! But what happens to it when it enters the environment? In this environmental experiment we will be seeing what happens when small pieces of plastics (called microplastics) interact with a small freshwater animal. Will the animals eat the plastics? Will the microplastics affect the animal? In this activity you will be the environmental scientist, undertake an experiment and answer these important questions.
