Litter Surveys using Earth Team’s Zerolitter app
Alhambra Earth Team interns did not waste any time learning about our Zerolitter app. Inspired by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Marine Debris Tracker, Earth Team interns now have the ability to track not only how many pieces of litter they pick up but also the litter type as well (plastics, glass, metal, etc.).
Students not only learn how to collect data and analyze it; they also use this data to create and lead service learning projects that involve their peers and community members. As these students continue their journey as Earth Team interns, they will gain professional development skills along the way that will undoubtedly lead them to success.
