Episode 30: Mucus Mansions & Pooping Plastic

  1.  If you had Mindy’s special submarine, which can drive across the country and dive into the ocean, what kind of scientific adventures would you go on?
  2. Can you come up with an invention based on the way that the giant larvacean eats that would filter the microplastics out of the oceans?
  3. Mindy mentioned that even if the microplastics are filtered out, there is still a ton of plastic from our trash which ends up in the ocean. Can you think of a way for people to stop using so much plastic or to keep the plastic in our garbage from getting into the ocean?
