DO YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO A REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH PROJECT?
This year from March – May, ISP students aged 8-14 are invited to participate in a real-world STEM research project through citizen science, supporting students to connect their classroom learning to real research, and encourage learning about thinking scientifically.
The theme for this year will be plastic pollution, and we are partnering with the fantastic team at Ellipsis Earth to enable ISP students to use cutting edge technology to help create a global heatmap of plastic waste. Join ‘I am an ISP Scientist’ a new International Learning Opportunity for Students, launching in 2021.
10 million tonnes of plastic waste is entering our oceans every year. 99% is missing…
- Where is the plastic ending up?
- How far around the planet does it travel?
- How long does it stay in the environment?
- How quickly do cleaned beaches and cities become re-polluted?
Today, it’s all a mystery. Without knowledge, we are stuck. WITH KNOWLEDGE WE CAN TURN TRASH INTO TREASURE, HARNESSING THE POWER OF MACHINE LEARNING & GLOBAL RESEARCH TO CREATE ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE.
Have you ever wanted to meet a scientist, hear about the latest research and discuss it with an expert? Do you want to know more about the people behind the science? Well now you can! The project includes inspiring opportunities to engage with STEM professionals behind cutting edge scientific innovation and discovery, encouraging ISP students to consider and explore a wide range of STEM careers.
