Explain your project in details:

Purpose: The purpose of my project is to preserve our marine environment. I am working towards Sustainable Development Goal SDG 14,Life Under Water, which aims to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development. We live on a blue planet, with oceans and seas covering more than 70 per cent of the Earths surface. Oceans feed us, regulate our climate, and generate most of the oxygen we breathe. Oceans are facing threats as a result of human activity. Every year, an estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the worlds oceans. Working: M Bot,Marine Robot Cleaner is a prototype robot that can remove floating wastes from water surfaces. It is basically shaped like a boat and can be operated remotely with a radio control. It runs with 2 motors that helps the boat to move in the water. Popsicle sticks are attached to a wheel and then to the third motor to push the waste from the water bodies into the storage basket. This prototype can also be fitted with a rotatable wireless camera which can help the controller of the boat to navigate the machine from a long distance away. Solar panels can also be used instead of batteries. Although this project could plausibly restore the purity of water, it nevertheless could be the initial step taken forward towards creating a better ecosystem. Results: It was visually apparent that the Popsicle stick pushes the wastes from the water bodies into the collecting basket.
