Join us to sieve sand samples and investigate which objects might be made of plastic using a microscope.

You will discover the differences between microplastics and nanoplastics, and why size is so important to the potential impact it can have on ecosystems and human health.

You will learn interesting things about microplastics, where they come from, their impact, how we can capture them as well as recycling tips and solutions to reduce our reliance on plastics.
