Bioaccumulation! Usually a vocabulary word for college students, however in this creative lab, students will learn what happens to animals that ingest plastic, and how the natural adaptations of these animals might harm them in a plastic polluted environment! Students must develop a working “feeding” device which allows them to obtain the most “energy points”, but watch out for the plastic pollution or else your creature won’t be fit enough make it to the next round!
