Microplastics Educational Toolkit with Automated Analysis Technology

Microplastics Educational Toolkit with Automated Analysis Technology

The Microplastics Educational Toolkit provides educators with resources, tools, technology and instructions to empower students with knowledge, skills and experience in STEAM and the environment.


Using step-by-step guides, lesson plans and training videos, educators will teach students about microplastic pollution, conduct mock scientific sampling activities in the classroom or field, upload and interpret the data using our Saturna Imaging System, then communicate the results and engage their local community in solutions. 


The Saturna Imaging System is the first-of-its-kind technology that rapidly analyzes data. Saturna automatically counts and characterizes the physical properties of visible microplastics from sandy beach samples to save time and reduce human error. By including Saturna in the Toolkit, students can experience high technology in a real-world environmental scenario that they might otherwise not have the opportunity to.
