Through the Noyce SOAR program, Brianna Garris created an outreach project to teach students in the Tallahassee area about the impact of marine debris on marine turtles. She visited three different schools, reaching about 270 students. Surprisingly, many of the students had prior knowledge of marine turtles and were eager to identify potential solutions to the pollution problem. Brianna encouraged the students to work in groups throughout the activities to promote collaboration and sharing of ideas- just like scientists out in the field!
