As a chemistry teacher i don't have the technical skills to build my own recycling machines. I do want to get involved in the community of precious plastic because i think it is a great way to fight global plastic polution. As a chemistry teacher i do understand the science behind the manufacturing and recycling op plastics. I also have quite some experience in writing school projects and lessons. I would like to use these skills to integrate precious plastic into schools, because i believe it is very important to teach the next generation how they can take care of our planet in a durable way. I think precious plastic offers a great opportunity to teach students about recycling plastic in a creative and fun way. I was very inspired by precous plastic monash in Australia. A group of students developed a mobile plastic recycling machine. They take this machine to schools to teach students how they can recycle plastic in a very easy way. Check out their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/preciousplasticmonash/ I would like to start a similar project in the Netherlands. I wrote a projectplan on how to integrate precious plastic into the curricula of different subjects of middle and highschool. Besides that i wrote an example chemistry lesson about different kind of plastics. I attached them to this topic, they are in Dutch but you will get a general idea of the project i want to start up. I am wondering if there is anybody who has any experience with using precious plastic in schools, please let me know how you did this. I would also like to colaborate with people who want to write this project with me. If you have any experience in education and you are interested helping out, please leave a comment. If you have any idea's on how i can arrange plastic recycling machines which are suitable for students or even if you are willing to build one for a schoolproject, please also let me know. I am thankfull for any input on how i can realize this project.
