Congratulations to South Pointe High School Environmental Science teacher, Susan Fields, 1 of 5 South Carolina State Finalist in the Samsung “Solve For Tomorrow” Contest. During their Tiny House Project, her students learned about sustainable living, land use and alternative energies. The students also researched the Tiny House movement happening in Rock Hill, including learning about the city’s zoning ordinance, which states the size requirements for homes. Fields received a free Samsung Tablet, which she can incorporate into future problem based learning projects.

- What is Green Steps?
Students collect and sort recycling at White Knoll High School. Green Step’s teacher, David Cann, then delivers the materials to Lexington County’s Edmund Landfill where the material will be transferred to Sonoco Recycling’s Material Recovery Facility to be baled and sent to factories.
Green Steps educator, Barbara Wagner, recently reached far beyond Anderson County when her mission team traveled to Guatemala. The small boy in the front is thrilled with his family’s new house and his “Go Green” reusable bag. Barbara was excited to see recycling posters in some nearby villages and a school mural made from bottle caps. She said, “It was great seeing “green” efforts even in this third world country.”
