|Teaching Students about Plastic Pollution|
By using art projects and a developed S.T.E.A.M. curriculum, teachers can engage their students to understand their role in pollution prevention. "I am the Solution..." is the message, with the Art Projects and the Science Museum Exhibition set to motivate students to take creative approaches to understand their impact on the natural environment.
A broad coalition of educators and organizations have gathered resources to provide interested teachers a program on plastic pollution education into their classrooms.
You are invited to join this unique and exciting program.
