Educator Workshop: Microplastics in the Marine Environment

Come celebrate Earth Science Week and National Chemistry Week, with the Lowcountry Hall of Science and Math and the Departments of Chemistry and Geology, through an interdisciplinary look at our marine environment. At this Educator Professional Development, we will explore micro plastics, how they got in the marine environment, why they persist there, and the impacts on aquatic life.

When: October 18, 2014 | 11AM-4PM (Lunch will be provided)
Where: College of Charleston School of Science and Math Building, 202 Calhoun St. (Room TBD)
Who: Educators of all grades (content will be focused on 5th-high school)

We will take into consideration science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts from the new SC Science Standards as we explore this hot topic issue.

Hope to see you there. Contact Cynthia Hall ( if you have any questions and if you would like to sign up.
