Recently we were visited by students from Transvaal University, an enrichment programme for low-income children in Transvaal neighborhood in the city of The Hague. Transvaal University is an initiative of the primary school ‘Het Galjoen’ and community centre ‘Boerenplein’ in the Transvaal district in The Hague. Every Saturday morning a class of fifteen eager students are taught a variety of different (socially oriented) subjects in order to enhance the talents and skill-sets of these children. I gave a workshop on microplastic and plastic pollution in the aquatic systems, and linked it to possible effects on fish. As part of the class we dissected a fish with the kids, and discussed how plastics and other pollutants can cause harm to organisms.
