school programs


AUSMAP will work with the NSW Environmental and Zoo Education Centres (EZECs) and their equivalents in other states, and the Australian Association of Environmental Educators (AAEE) network, to provide full training of all educators to ensure rigorous scientific data is collected and collated for further analysis


Trained environmental educators will then provide a reliable controlled platform program delivery to any high-school based either coastal or inland, as long as there is access to a waterway (e.g. beach, lagoon, river, creek, dam or similar)


At each of the Regional Hubs, educators will be trained in methodology and delivery of the plastic problem, ensuring rigour in delivery and reliability of data


Regional Hubs will have all of the necessary field equipment, will undertake preliminary identification of microplastic samples with students and assist with data entry, which is a critical part of AUSMAP


Centres will run activities independently, handling promotions and school engagements


Resources will be provided to education staff with everything they could possibly need for effective delivery and local administration of the activities


AUSMAP is working with education partners to ensure that all resources and activities in the program are matched to state and national education curriculum


AUSMAP is a program of the Total Environment Centre, with the generous support of initial funding from the Coca Cola Global Foundation.
