Help Sponsor Undergraduate Research with UNCW Plastic Ocean Project!
UNCW Plastic Ocean Project
Research is a crucial part of the undergraduate experience and a critical aspect of helping solve the global plastic pollution problem. For UNCW Plastic Ocean Project, one of the main pillars of our organization is providing solutions through innovation and research. Since our club's founding, we have been invested in engaging our students in scientific research of plastic. From studying plastic pollution distribution across our coastlines & quantifying plastic composition in sea salt, to microplastic consumption in commercially important fish, UNCW Plastic Ocean Project has continued to promote undergraduate research.
These research projects provide solutions to our plastic pollution problem by better understanding how plastic impacts our natural systems and effectively advocate for improving and changing our plastic consumption and waste management. In addition, these research projects also catapult students into future careers in STEM and environmentalism. Student research opportunities are driving forces in inspiring students into life-changing careers that ultimately impact our future for the better.
Every gift matters!
By making a gift to our project, you are directly impacting a UNCW student's experience, helping us reach our $3,500 goal to purchase and provide research equipment. This equipment will allow for more UNCW students to gain research experience and continue to change the way we look at plastic pollution, as we seek to save our seas.
