Students at the ELC making plastic art. Last month,CEI Research Associate Kristal Ambrose had the opportunity to work with the "mini scientists" at the Early Learning Center (ELC) on campus, giving a presentation on plastic pollution. Kristal said, "To my surprise, these guys knew a lot about the issue, and even taught me a thing or two!"They acted out the North Pacific Gyre current, sang and danced to a song about how plastics break down, went to the beach to collect plastic, and then made art from it. It was such a great experience for everyone involved!

The finished products!
