World Ocean Day at Frost Science Museum

Miami, Florida
June 4, 2023


On Sunday, June 4th, 2023, The International SeaKeepers Society joined 17 other education and conservation organizations to table at Frost Science Museum to celebrate World Ocean Day. We set up a table on the third floor of the museum where patrons coming and going from the exhibits passed by and stopped to learn about our work. In order to educate the public about pollution, we set up interactive activities such as our Foldscopes, which we used to magnify samples of sargassum and sand from Deerfield Beach. The Foldscopes allowed us to discuss the composition of our silica-based sand and allow people to visualize the individual plant cells in a sargassum leaf. We also used our jars full of “biodegradable” plastics and microplastic beads in seawater to illustrate the infinite lifetime of plastic and how this can harm marine life and us. This led to many discussions about the harm of single-use plastics to our ocean-life and changes we can make to reduce our impact. We are grateful to the Frost Science Museum for hosting us to celebrate World Ocean Day 2023!

Outing Goal

The goal of this outing was to educate the patrons of the Frost Science Museum about ocean pollution and conservation efforts and invite them to engage with us in the future.
