Oregon Sea Grant creates curriculum, provides educator professional development, leads student events, and partners with the Oregon Coast STEM Hub to provide resources for formal and informal educators.
For Educators of Youth in Grades 4-12: Have you or your students encountered marine debris on Oregon beaches? Are you looking for ways (or MORE ways) to incorporate the topic of marine debris into your teaching?
Join Oregon Sea Grant as we share the Marine Debris Interruptions project, which guides students as they seek to understand local sources and community-level solutions to prevent marine debris. Through the 5E lesson model, students trace back a particular item found on an Oregon beach to determine where it came from and what it was originally used for. Once the life cycle story of the item is understood, students propose how to interrupt its escape into the environment. Participants will receive a $50 stipend.
