Microplastics Collection Challenge

Presented by Emory University Saikawa Lab, Altamaha Riverkeeper

Join the Emory University Saikawa Lab and Altamaha Riverkeeper at Panola Shoals and test your engineering skills! With just an empty ice cream container, shoelaces, and chicken wire mesh, you will create a simple design for microplastic collection and test it on the Altamaha River. Learn about the issues our rivers and communities face, and how you can help ensure everyone has access to clean water. So, are you up to the challenge?

This event repeats at 11am and 12pm.
