SCS Idle Free Schools
SCS Idle Free Schools is an idling reduction campaign for schools to reduce student exposure to toxic vehicle exhaust. This a student-run science or community involvement project, providing students with the opportunity to learn how to run a public service campaign while advocating for a cleaner, greener environment. We partnered with the Shelby County Health Department Air Pollution Control. Supervisor, Sonia Owens came and shared with the Idle Free team to educate them about the air quality initiatives that her office is providing throughout our city and county. STEM Instructor, Dr. Angela Shepherd and Principal Stephanie Beach served as the Idle Free team sponsors assembling the team for training and helping facilitate the project to success.
