RSP presents new unit on plastic pollution

Micro plastic pollution: We can’t say enough about it…

RSP presented at the Missouri Environmental Education Association (MEEA) conference held in October. We conducted one of the lab activities from our new unit on the St. Louis connection to plastic pollution in our ocean. We will come to your school to conduct the lab and bring all necessary equipment and supplies, including goggles and gloves.

The unit also includes geography and language arts components as well as community service project ideas and opportunities. Teachers can use the entire unit or just an individual activity. See our newsletter for more details.
