We are looking for new team members with the following skills

We are looking for members with data science experience to help us in the process of detecting nurdles.

The challenge 

Nurdles are a type of microplastic that flood the marine ecosystem and are therefore consumed by a variety of different organisms. These nurdles are full of toxins and chemicals from residual flows from agriculture and industry. As a result, they not only pose a danger to the marine ecosystem, but they can also cause enormous health risks for humans through bioaccumulation.

The solution

We are the Nurdle Soup team, a multidisciplinary student team with expertise in sustainable innovation, mechanical engineering, industrial design and data science. Our team is working on the development of a counting mechanism in order to obtain data about this still fairly unknown problem. We believe that with this data we can enforce a change in the conventional plastic industry. Ultimately we hope to be able to detect and prevent the leakage from industry.
