Oregon Sea Grant offers a workshop for educators in grades 4-12 who would like to incorporate the topic of marine debris prevention into their teaching.  “Marine Debris Interruptions” takes place on Thursday, Feb. 24, 4:30-6 p.m.

Sea Grant will share a lesson structure that focuses on marine debris prevention at the community level.  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 lifecycle of the item is understood, students propose how to interrupt its escape into the environment.
