The Ocean Plastic lab is an international traveling exhibition. It showcases the contribution of science to tackle the problem of plastic in the ocean. The exhibition is designed as a hands-on science lab inviting the visitor to assume the roles and tasks of scientists and by that understanding the impact of plastic in the ocean.
In the context of current discussions about science in society, the lab demonstrates science’s fundamental role in tackling societal challenges and highlights that society is an integral part of science.
The Ocean Plastics Lab has been initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research together with the German Marine Research Consortium, supported by the European Commission and international partners from politics and science.
