Diving for Data

Oceaneers Education Logo redDescription

Created by marine biology training experts, our workshop raises students’ awareness of different kinds of litter in water environments, and the impact it may have on animals, humans and aquatic habitats.

Students learn about sources of marine litter through a variety of discussions with the use of statistics and graphs that will help to describe the amounts of marine debris that is found each year.

Students will learn about micro-plastics whilst using mathematical techniques to calculate the amount of plastics consumed by marine wildlife.
