Design a poster with National Geographic Young Explorers Vanina Harel and Sara Camnasio. They’ll show their VR film Grandpa’s Reef and share how they’re finding solutions for plastic pollution in our oceans. Kids will get hands-on with iPad and Apple Pencil to sketch an environmental poster. Recommended for ages 10–15. Then join music sessions during Week 4 of our StoryMakers Festival.
