GT iGEM team 2021 consists of eleven G9 to G10 students working on a project to address plastic pollution
problem. The team is further divided into three sub-teams to put effort into finding solutions from
different perspectives. The three sub-teams include Research team, Human Practice team and Drone & AI
teams. The team receives supports from their biology teacher, university professors, experts from
different sectors, student advisers and university iGEM teams. The collaborative efforts make the project
ideas evolve and turn into reality!
