Dear Division 17 and 18
Please check out the article found at the link here. There is text, images and also a video. Please take a look at all three features in this article.
For your homework this week, please respond to ONE of the following questions.
- Think back to our work with the Engineers without Borders when we thought about systemic solutions, which looked at the source of the problem, rather than a “band-aid” solution that just covers it up. If a “band-aid” solution for the garbage in our harbours is to pick up the garbage that is currently on the ocean floor, what systemic solution would you propose? Explain what steps you would take and the impact you expect your plan to have on the harbours and coastlines of Canada.
- Do some further research on one of the items that the article and/or the video describes having been found on the ocean floor. In your post, identify what impact that item may have on the ocean floor and on its role as a habitat. Be specific!
We look forward to your responses!
