Can Robots Clean the Ocean?
November 13th, 2015 | Rachel Tepper, Operations Manager
This entry is both sad and optimistic at the same time. It’s sad because there’s now a thing called The Great Pacific Garbage Patch made up of tiny, pea-sized bits of decomposing plastic. It’s a soupy, messy anomaly that’s about the size of Texas. The good news is that, while humans have caused the problem, we can also clean it up. Many people have started inventing robots that could do the job, including 21-year old inventor named Boyant Slat. We think you should put your mind to the task and invent something, too. Take a look at Boyant’s design, investigate the problem and see what your mind can do.
