Here at AHI, we have been really focusing on reducing our plastic usage throughout every area of the school. The epidemic permeating across the world is snowballing at an alarming rate – microplastics are found in the bellies of fish, the digestive system of plankton (the very base of the food chain) all the way to air molecules in the Himalayas. It is everywhere. As scientists believe we are moving into a new age, we struggle to control the damage already done to our planet by our latest tool derivative era – The Plastic Age.
AHI Year 9 class have been assessing the school’s use of plastic through the venerable medium of a geographical enquiry. They carried out questionnaires, collected information and completed a google slide document that you can access here https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1naW-8TP19QetgWGgWHBurfXd58rHa2jPMYLmOwfpAfo/edit#slide=id.g621f105ce8_7_7
Additionally, they wrote articles explaining what they have been doing regarding this project which will be published here soon.
