The Adventures of Young Guardians

NMNS, February 27, 2018 - From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet. In response, Earth Day 2018 is dedicated to providing the information and inspiration needed to fundamentally change human attitude and behavior about plastics. As the leading institute of natural science in Taiwan, we believe we have the responsibility to teach our kids to care for our planet and offer the perfect combination of innovative, hands-on science curriculum and FUN.

What: Do you want to help save our planet? Then this is the camp for you! Watch an unbelievable video about albatross on Midway Island and the plastic we consume, which the inhabiting albatross population ingests, causing a shocking and painful death. Learn how easy and fun it can be to save our environment by reducing, reusing and recycling through stories about young guardians' adventures. You will receive your own toolkit, including scissors, pins and ornaments and create your own recycled bags from your old T-shirt or vest. Don't forget to bring your toolkit and bag for recycling!
