QuikSCience Challenge!!

Team Marine “Bag Team” competed in this year’s QuikSCience Challenge!

The QuikSCience challenge is a competition for middle and high school students. Each team creates a science project related  to marine or freshwater environments. The challenge is sponsored by the USC College Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies in partnership with Quiksilver Inc.

Each team (up to 6 students) submits:

  • A portfolio that includes all they’ve done
  • A lesson plan that they will teach to other students, and
  • A community service project
  • A research proposal
  • An Environmental Solution
  • and a 2min summary video clip

 

Our project: Plastic Pollution

We learn a lot just by being in Team Marine, but this project gave us the opportunity to learn even more and apply all that we’ve learned to a meaningful and inspiring project. Not only this, but this project brought us closer together as a team and has taught us skills that we can use throughout the rest of our lives. We admit, some parts of the project were difficult, but we pulled through and had a great experience in the end. Thanks QuikSCience!!
