MARINE DEBRIS IN OUR OCEANS

Teachers! Please join us for our next Professional Development Workshop:

Saturday, February 21st, 2015
8:30 AM - 12:30 PM, It is free of charge but please RSVP!

Gulf of the Farallones Pier Classroom
991 Marine Drive, The Presidio, San Francisco, CA 94129

Marine Debris in our oceans is a challenge being met by both scientists and educators to find a way forward in reducing human waste in the seas.
This marine debris workshop will include:

• A presentation by a keynote scientist studying marine debris.  Chelsea Rochman will talk about her research into micro- plastics in the ocean.

• Presentations on seabird ingestion of plastics and ideas on how to teach this subject in your classroom

• Using NGSS guidelines, The GFNMS have designed a set of experiments you can do with your students to measure and analyse the processes involved in marine debris accumulation. These include:

1) Nurdles: What are they? Where can they be found and what is their impact on the marine environment?
2) Drift studies: by watching how objects float in the bay, students can use real time data on tides and currents to see how marine debris is dispersed in the marine environment.
This teacher workshop series is sponsored by the Seven Tepees Youth Program WAVES initiative and made possible through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) B-WET program.

Please contact Peter Winch at pwinch@farallones.org or 415 425 6450 to reserve a place.
