Plastic Smart

Look into the future of our planet and explore one of the topical problems currently faced by our environment. What exactly is the problem with plastic? How much plastic are we using and what happens to it when we throw it away? Investigate the impacts of plastic on our environment and think critically about what alternatives there may be through interactive investigations and activities.

You may also wish to explore this topic outside or as an online workshop experience - see the Outdoor Learning and Online Workshop sections of our website for more information.
