RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE PLASTIC WASTE IN THE SEA

Jotvingiai Gymnasium continues its activities in the STEM discovery campaign and aims to become the European Blue School. Our topic is “Healthy and Clean Ocean”. The main goals of bringing the ocean into the classroom are improving the understanding of the ocean and developing a sense of responsibility towards our planet. Our gymnasium teachers take the challenge Find the Blue and together with the students create the school project SPOW05 HEALTHY AND CLEAN OCEAN.

On March 30, we organized a lecture-discussion in English-Lithuanian “Plastic pollution of the ocean and its impact on living organisms”. The meeting on the Microsoft Teams platform was attended by students of grades I-II and their teachers. The lecture was given by Edita Magileviciute, a marine biologist from Alytus, who currently works for the international non-governmental Cape Verde Ecotourism Association on the Atlantic island of Santiago.
