Finding Solutions: It's a Marathon

Scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, communities and individuals are all investigating ways to reduce the consumption of single use plastics and decrease the amount of waste polluting our environment.

In this activity, students explore an innovative solution to this problem by creating biodegradable and edible water ‘bottles’ made from brown algae. There are six parts to this activity, which include: preparing materials; the edible water 'bottle' experiment; elements, compounds and mixtures; ions and chemical reactions; design evaluation; and, future solutions.
