Spend Friday evening, October 1 on the beautiful Science Museum of Long Island grounds for Outdoor Movie Night,
featuring Microplastic Madness,
an award-winning documentary film about 56 5th grade students from P.S. 15 in Red Hook, Brooklyn who deep dive into the root causes of plastic pollution. Taking on the roles of citizen scientists and community advocates, they collect and use their own local data to inform policy by testifying and rallying at City Hall. Then they turned their focus back to school, taking action in their cafeteria to eliminate all single-use plastic!
