O'Neill Sea Odyssey

After their trip on the boat, the students come into our classroom for three additional lessons. At the shoreside marine ecology station, the kids get to see how pesticides, fertilizers, plastics, oil and other pollutants move from land into the ocean through our watershed model. After creating a rain storm with spray bottles and seeing how polluted the ocean gets from runoff, our instructors then discuss how to limit their impact by carpooling, recycling and other methods to keep the ocean life thriving! We also show an actual sample of plastic from the Great Pacific garbage patch so the students see how the plastic degrades.
