Underwater Investigator

Secondary students take on the role of marine scientist to develop their own solutions to ocean pollution.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

This workshop introduces practical, hands-on experiments which explore major challenges affecting our oceans, with students examining:

  • microplastics
  • oil spills
  • carbon cycle
  • ocean acidification
  • marine bioindicators.

We focus on developing investigation and interpretation skills. Students can build on their understanding of the impact of pollution on our ocean environment, including the implications this has on phytoplankton – the base of marine food chains.

Inspire your students to take the first step towards developing innovative solutions for environmental challenges!
