Zak Noyle was shooting surfer Dede Surinaya in a remote bay in #Indonesia when they discovered the water to be covered in #garbage. The bay was miles from any town, yet strong currents had carried the #trash of the world’s most #populated island, Java, to its once pure waters.

The questions are appropriate for grades 7-10 and there is a slight emphasis on independent and dependent variables.
