From a rotating solar panel to a vertical garden, students created some very innovative environmental solutions in the 1st Giti Math and Science Award Program for the Chester County School District in South Carolina.
Giti Tire officials announced the program at the groundbreaking ceremony for the company’s passenger and light truck tire plant presently under construction in Chester County. The contest, which required students to create an eco-friendly solution that can be used by the community, started at the beginning of the school year with math and science clubs being formed at 11 participating schools.
Three schools – Great Falls High School, Great Falls Middle School and the Chester Park Center of Literacy Through Technology (in the elementary school competition) were awarded first place during an April 6 ceremony in Chester County.
