Best Suited to: 14-16 years.

The second of a two part series featuring Dr Imogen Napper, Marine Scientist and MCS Sea Champion Volunteer. Dr Napper is an expedition scientist on the National Geographic ‘Sea to Source; Ganges Expedition’. As the microplastic lead, Imogen is investigating microplastics in a major river system. The data collected will help us to better understand the movement of plastic through a river and the repercussions it can have. In this session, Dr Napper will introduce her work as part of this project and there will be a live Q&A. This session may be of particular interest to young people considering a career in STEM.
