Riding the Wave of Green Chemistry: How to Enhance Awareness of Plastics in the Ocean
Plastics permeate every aspect of our society. Although, students and the public recognize their many benefits, reports of their alarming buildup in our oceans and resulting harm to aquatic life is a topic that resonates with all.
Join Jane Wissinger of University of Minnesota and Reuben Hudson of Colby College in a free interactive webinar for Chemists Celebrate Earth Week. During this special broadcast, Jane and Reuben will bring awareness to the accumulation of plastics in our oceans, highlight outreach and curriculum materials that teach polymer basics, and feature innovative ideas by chemists who apply green principles to develop more sustainable materials.
