12-year-old engineer invents device to combat ocean microplastic pollution
Du created an underwater remotely operated vehicle that uses infrared light to detect, photograph and help remove microplastics from marine environments without harming living creatures.
“Plastics are already a huge problem, and then there are microplastics,” Du told AccuWeather. “When fish eat it, they get a toxin called bisphenol A inside their bodies, and even if they poop the plastics out, they still keep the toxin inside of them.”
The health of humans also faces detrimental impacts from consuming plastic-contaminated fish. source: https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/6th-grader-invents-device-to-combat-ocean-microplastic-pollution/70005513?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=mixi&utm_campaign=accuweather
