Hey New England Aquarium Friends!!! Sean and I are going to be giving a talk on Wednesday, July 25th from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, in the Harborside Learning Lab. We will be talking about effective marine debris communication, and giving tips for ways environmental educations can engage and empower visitors. Also, we will be discussing highlights and takeaways from the 6th International Marine Debris Conference. Come, see some trashy pictures and let's talk about marine debris messaging! This photo is a view from our marine debris sorting table. Many of you may recognize the water bottle (debris soaker) as NEAq Volintern swag! @newenglandaquarium #marinedebris #environmentaleducation #scienceeducator #liveblue #breakfreefromplastic #refusesingleuseplastics #bethechange #makeithappen #beachcleanup #empoweryouth #sciencetalk #aquariumfun #newenglandaquarium #inourhands #plasticfreejuly #plasticfreeseas #notwhalefood #stopsuckingcampaign #6imdc #microplastic

Bug Day for this little Temple! It was even his birthday today! #bugsrule #bugbirthdayparty #bugsareawesome #insectlove #insectscience #myjobisawesome #scienceeducator #westonfl

Why do we have zoos? Are they ethical? Together with @zoosvictoria we’ve developed Fighting Extinction - a new science unit that requires students to use critical thinking to investigate ethical dilemmas. These free curriculum-aligned primary and secondary lessons encourage humane attitudes toward people, wildlife and the environment.

Bubbles, light & rainbows! It’s amazing to me each time (after so many years of teaching) that by simply blowing bubbles with children can inspire so much laughter and smiles! #ilovemyjob #scienceeducator #scienceteacher #chemistryforkids #bubblefun #bubblescience #plantationfl

Fun with nature journaling—a great way to explore science and art!

Reptile day with Trixie and Happyland kids! I took a goofy selfie with one of my science smarties Mithrum!#reptilesofinstagram #herpatology #beardeddragon #sciencepet #scienceeducator #summerscience #ftlauderdale

We decided to do an evening beach cleanup last night. I love doing evening beach cleanups in the summer, the crowds are gone and the weather is cooler. Last night we hit Winthrop Beach at low tide. The wrack line was loaded with styrofoam, broken down plastic packaging, and straws, straws, straws! However, there were also tons of weird finds, including a bra, two toy cars, a couple of bike reflectors, oh and a CLOWN NOSE!!! You can tell by the photos and the fact that I didn't even brush it off before it went straight on my face, that I was pretty excited. By the time the sun was down, our bags were full. The small bags we have been using for microplastics and things we want to keep were our lunch sacks provided at the 6th International Marine Debris Conference. Refuse and Reduce plastic use, Reuse as much as you can, and Remember, recycling is great but it isn't a solution. There are lots of R's to practice first, and if you do, what's leftover to recycle will be dramatically reduced, and what you send to the landfill can be minimal! #scienceeducator #environmentaleducation #marinedebris #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly #beachlitter #beachcleanup #microplastic #microplastics #6imdc #clownnose #reducereuserecycle #noexcuseforsingleuse #refusethestraw #refusesingleuseplastics #refusesingleuse #dothisforfun #massachusettsbeaches #liveblue #nobluenogreen #bethechange #stopsucking #refusethestraw #banthestraw #banthebag #summerday

I was using this shell to collect microplastics. The microplastics @sean_.rothwell and I have collected this summer have been given to the New England Aquarium Education Department to be used to engage visitors and discuss plastic pollution. #liveblue #savetheoceans #microplastics #microplastic #bethechange #bebetter #beachcleanup #beachlife #beachlitter #refusethestraw #noexcuseforsingleuse #banthebag #plastickills #plasticfreejuly #newenglandbeaches #environmentalscience #scienceeducator #environmentaleducation #aquariums

Beautiful fungi on the trail!

More butterfly sightings!

Swallowtail sighting!

We were fortunate enough to have @medickinson (aka Nanogirl) give an inspiring speech to our students this afternoon. Despite failing at school, Michelle has gone on to become a nanotechnologist and a science educator. She is a role model for all students, especially girls, who don't fit the mould and she encouraged our students to 'believe you can!'
