Our final project is an informative website focused on the topic of ocean pollution. In it we have detailed the causes and effects of ocean pollution as well as how you can help alleviate its effects. We have also created and embedded a simple video game using Scratch in which the user controls a fishing boat that fishes for trash rather than sea life. Additionally we created data charts of marine protected land using the Pandas library in Python. With this website, we hope to educate and engage people of the looming threat of ocean pollution.
We are the problem! Manmade pollutants such as fertilizers, plastic, and oil end up in the ocean harming animals and humans alike.
We wanted to build a website to educate people about the dangers of ocean pollution. We did a lot of research and listed the causes and effects of ocean pollution as well as what people can do to help; we even built a game to engage the audience and spread awareness about the amount of trash in our planet's oceans.
Using Bootstrap required us to work outside the box to get the features and layouts we wanted and using Scratch led to restrictions in making the game particularly with the fishing hook.
