More about the workshop: The Project SORT Marine Debris Teacher Workshop, funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program, will be held on Monday July 7th through Thursday, July 10th (until noon). Interspersed with presentations given by research scientists on current marine debris topics are hands-on learning sessions that will take place in the lab and out in the field. Educational materials to enhance what you are already teaching will be provided. Marine debris topics will include types, sources, movements, micro plastics and conservation measures. A boat excursion to nearby Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge to conduct a marine debris shoreline survey will be a highlight!
