Abstract

Plastics and pollution in the ocean pose a tremendous threat to the world’s biodiversity and human life on the planet. However, this issue is characterized by a lack of visibility and urgency. People do not understand the importance of this pollution because they do not sense an immediate or tangible impact on their lives. AdvocaSea is a virtual reality experience that teaches people about plastics in the ocean in a more immersive and engaging way, and by doing so, gives them more motivation and agency to make change in the world. This experience was delivered at Santa Clara’s Senior Design Conference in 2020.
