Invention Story

The Idea!

It’s a fish that picks up plastic in the ocean. It takes plastic and puts it in the bucket. It goes through a tube into the fish. Once it's full, the fish goes up to air and empties the plastic.

Jayla has been using her Inventor's Log to think more about her idea and tell us some great oceans facts that she has learned through taking part in the challenge. Jayla has also drawn this great picture of how she like to enjoy the ocean herself. Well done Jayla!
