With an interactive presentation, using plastic props, the team first introduce marine plastics, making the learning process fun and creative.
Using a hands-on and question-answer approach, the children learn to understand the scale of marine plastics in our environment, their impact and how to help and mitigate the problem.
Snippets of Vinny's award-winning film 'COALESCE' is shown after the presentation.
Through out the film, our team pauses to ask the children's thoughts, incorporating questions previously covered during the presentation.
Here, the children can start to use what they have learnt during the presentation and apply it first hand, combining lessons and visuals to gather a better picture of marine plastics.
At the end of the short film, we begin a short and fun discussion of what we have learnt, recapping and connecting our presentation and visuals.
To finish the workshop, we offer a competition. The theme of this varies. The prize includes a 1-hour SUP lesson with Vinny who is a qualified instructor.
EXTRA: A scheduled trip to the local beach to undertake a beach clean with the class.
