Engineering for Good

Plastic is a useful and ubiquitous item in our lives, but the fact that it doesn’t biodegrade means that it has long-term effects on the Earth. Middle school science classrooms across the country can develop  solutions for negative impacts of plastic on the environment with KQED Learning’s new Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS)-aligned, project-based learning unit, Engineering for Good.
