Plastics and Microbead Investigation
Posted by Corbridge Middle School, United Kingdom on 19 January 2018
Post related to Make your own Challenge ,

Last year one of the most iconic pictures in the news was a picture of a seahorse clutching an ear bud. This, and other news stories about the amount of plastic in our oceans, has brought the subject of plastics in water and plastic production into the eye of the public. We decided to investigate plastics and microbeads  using miroscopes, find out how they get into the water supply and to identify what alternatives there are.
