Mission/Purpose: Children hear of the extreme build-up of trash in the North Pacific Central Ocean Gyre between California and Hawaii. They must figure out if it truly is an island, what it is made of, and what can be done to keep it from growing. As a crew, children will be faced with ocean research challenges along the way - designing trawls, testing water quality and creating their own underwater investigation equipment.
Activities: Hands-on problem solving and learning through creating: building waterproof cases, boat logs, fishing poles and so much more!
