Plastic Soup Educator Workshop

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, March 9, 2019
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

What happens when our plastic pollution enters the ocean?

Join the Algalita Marine Research Institute and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium to learn more about the science involved in studying this issue and the solutions being developed to tackle it!

Use hands-on activities to bring real-world science into the classroom and encourage your students to develop the same observational skills scientists use to further understand the health of our oceans.

This workshop includes:

+ A presentation on the science behind micro-plastics in the ocean

+ Hands on investigation of plastics in the marine food web

+ FREE Algalita Debris Science Investigation Kit for a 50 minute class

There will be light refreshments and great give-aways!

The workshop is free to attend but space is limited.

This workshop is generously sponsored by Andeavor and FREE to all registered participants. LAUSD P.D. hours are available for attendees.

Registration is required. If you would like to sign up or have any questions, feel free to contact us at 310-548-7562 or at
