  • Analysing waste classification for its reuse and the recycling of daily resources.
  • Assimilating recycling and the reuse of materials as a fundamental need for sustainable development.

Microplastics:

¿Do your students know what microplastics are or how they reach the seas? And why are they so dangerous? Surely they have seen them more than once and know what they are! This workshop will be a great opportunity for them to learn everything about this type of pollution. They will become experts!

PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS


  • Learning what a binocular magnifying glass is and how it is used
  • Finding out more about the problem that microplastics bring to the environment
  • Analysing the impacts of this type of pollution
  • Learning about different types of plastic and their degradation processes
  • Sorting out microplastics according to different types of plastic and degradation processes
  • Assessing the risks derived from human action
  • Understanding the absorption of microplastics by animals and how it affects the food chain.

ESO (Compulsory Secondary Education)

CO2, The enemy

Surely your students know or have heard about CO2, but how exactly does it influence the seas? What impact do they have on the oceans? For this workshop, we have transformed Poema del Mar in a laboratory!

  • Learning what are the effects and threats of greenhouse gases to the planet
  • Performing a simple chemical experiment
  • Collecting scientific data
  • Interpreting results obtained through a chemical formulation.

The sea urchins on my beach

Sea urchins are a typical species living on our shores, and surely your students have seen them on a number of occasions. But how much do they really know about them? With this workshop, they will be able to watch them closely and learn more about their different characteristics while playing.
