Teaming up with educators
POP, Inc. joins UNCW educating undergraduates about plastic marine debris using our open-ocean samples collected from various aquatic regions in the world. We supervise lab research instrumentation, encourage scientific method, and help incubate progressive solutions to plastic pollution. On a global scale, Plastic Ocean Project, Inc. is joining Reach the World and Beautiful Nation educating over one million students from around the world as we circumnavigate the globe on Makulu, a 43' sailing vessel that will bring ocean science into the classroom. Won't you join us by adding your school to the network of schools from around the world, individually following along, volunteer, and by making a donation to keep education on marine debris moving.
