School x Science x Art meet at the artistic-experimental Material Lab to research on plastic alternatives, material innovations and technologies. By including it into the school curriculum we enable the young generation to get access to latest research on the burning issue of the plastic epidemic and to apply this directly into their own creations, experiencing self-efficacy. Starting point: Plastic waste diary of family consumption over 4 weeks, papers on recycling, micro-plastics in drinking water, (hormonal) effect of plastic on humans, garbage patches in the oceans, etc. Scientists provide insights, present materials and challenges, offer hands-on experiences. Students learn and experiment to develop their own materials and/ or products, artistic objects. Results are presented through a public exhibition.
