Professional Development Workshop for educators
offered by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and Woods Hole Sea Grant

"Plastic and Microplastic in the Ocean: What is it, and what happens to it?"
Dr. Tracy John Mincer, WHOI Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry Department;
Mr. Jeffrey Brodeur, Communications and Outreach Specialist, Woods Hole Sea Grant

Human-generated plastic debris in the ocean is a growing problem. Learn about plastic that ends up in the sea, from large visible items down to micro-sized particles. Find out what happens to plastics on a beach or in the open sea. Hear what directions research is taking and go to a local beach to see how ‘citizen science’ is helping track the problem.  K-12 resources included.

When: Friday May 20, 2016,  9:30 – 2:30, at the WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center

General level, middle school and high school educators.
Registration $30, breakfast, lunch, and parking passes provided, professional development certificates available.
