The Weekend of Science 2022

Last October during the weekend of science 2022 Floris, Matthijs, Anne and Maartje gave an interactive workshop at the Utrecht Science Park to Dutch primary school children and their parents. During the workshop they discussed and demonstrated the effect of greenhouse gasses like CO2 and plastic waste on marine life. Next to that they also showed how to produce plastics and take care of the waste in a sustainable manner for a circular plastic economy.
