The event is part of a weeks-long focus on "Ocean Plastics." Classrooms tuned in live from Texas, North Carolina, Ontario, and Connecticut. Sherry gave a brief presentation on her background, the marine debris issue, solutions, and how students can get involved. Students asked hard-hitting questions on issues including society's use of single-use plastics, the impacts of debris on marine life, and how to pursue a career at NOAA.
