The plastic problem

This half term, pupils in 10C Chemistry were asked to work in groups to produce a fun and informative short film to help draw attention to the problems surrounding plastic waste disposal.

They were asked to look at things like how non-recyclable waste is disposed of, how so much plastic ends up in the ocean and possible solutions to the problem, and evaluate the use of biodegradable plastics and the materials being used for them.

You can watch some of their films here (please note, the first video contains images which some viewers may find upsetting).
