Event description
It is a showcase of the latest technological research on "STEM the Tide of Plastic Pollution" & future impact on STEM education.

About this Event

Book your tickets here to the BIEA 2020 STEM Conference!

"STEM (Stop) the Tide of Plastic Pollution"

It reflects two major concepts:

Ø Technological innovation;

Ø The clearing of plastic waste from our shorelines.

The plastic problem

Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products continues to overwhelm the world’s ability to deal with them. More than five trillion pieces of plastic already fill the seas, with some nine million tons added each year.

The challenge

Muddy banks of rivers and lakes, and shorelines under steep cliffs, are treacherous places to be cleaning up plastic. Beaches below cliffs can be cut off quickly by tides, and mud banks can suck a person into deep mud. Clearing plastic in these waterlines is very dangerous, however there is just as much plastic washed up on them as on tourist beaches.

Let’s find ways of clearing plastic from riverbanks and beaches before it is transported deeper into the oceans.

Join us for a season of debate, discussion, lectures on the "STEM (Stop) the Tide of Plastic Pollution" wherever you are from in the world!

At the same time, details of the BIEA 2020 International STEM Youth Innovation Competition will be announced in the event.
