It’s time to summarize our work and tell the world about. Earlier we’ve talked about making interesting movies to tell the world about our thoughts and ideas during this project.
Are there any changes in consumer habits when it comes to single use and/or reusable plastic? What sort of possibilities are there in our communities. We visited one of our commendable local businesses, namely Rapsodine.
We have done some experiments to identify different plastics. We investigated what happens when we burn them, do they float or sink and how do they sound? After that we looked in a chart to find out which plastic it was and we managed to find out really well.
To mediate the results of the investigation, we were forced to mostly use the internet due to COVID-19. However, it worked out really well as we got attention in the local news and municipal management.
It is no secret that teachers love coffee, but maybe they love it a bit too much? Are the teachers at our school contributing to more pollution, simply by drinking their favorite beverage?
The students in Sweden did recently do a survey where they investigated the possibilities to recycle on some local places in the municipality. The results where interesting as it turned out that the differences between the places where big.
Groups from the project “Blast the Plast” in Sweden was participating in a lecture made by John Downey from Dalenium Science Center. Throughout the day both Iceland and Germany could follow all contents as a virtual mobility.
In order to get the message spread we had the amazing opportunity to be part of the LKJ BademWürttemberg project “YourStory”. The really nice team gave us an inside on how professional film making is done and helped us create our own master pieces
The Swedish students got to learn more about monomers and polymers last week. We read about it, looked at a movie about plastic and talked about it and we built molecules.
During the entire school year students that participated in the Erasmus+ project Blast the Plast studied the issue of plastic pollution in cooperation with their partner schools in Sweden and Iceland.
