British Science Week 2018 – The Plastic Tide

As this week is British Science Week, Year 6 have been devling into the depths of our oceans. With the theme being ‘exploration and discovery’, we decided to explore the rather unknown blue seas. On Monday, the children worked with the charity The Plastic Tide as they tagged plastic on the shores around the world. This tagging system helps their computer algorithm to automatically locate, identify, monitor and map plastics on our coastlines. We feel like we did our part to help out 😃
