Stickers! Litter monitoring forms! Teen Learning Lab is preparing to clean up one of the beaches in Waukegan next month. This is a great way for the Underwater Robotics class to get started understanding how water, land, air, and humans are all interconnected. As part of the Alliance of Great Lakes Adopt A Beach program, we will be counting each piece of trash we collect, recycling what we can and weighing what’s left over. All our data will be entered into the alliance’s database, which allows them to monitor the health of the five Great Lakes. Our event is part of the annual Adopt a Beach cleanup that the alliance sponsors. And students will have fun working together to make the beach a better place and experiencing Lake Michigan.
