  • FINALISTS: Team from LR Central.
A team from Little Rock Central High School was a national finalist in the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, which encourages projects on environmental sustainability.

The Central team, taught by Gary Earleywine, looked for solutions to roadside litter.

We tested how much trash people still throw away when they are exposed to signs denouncing littering and trash bags. We hope that this information will help our community and others help keep their environments beautiful by understanding what treatment make the people litter less.

A panel of environmental advocates, STEM professionals, science teachers and professors selected the winners. They looked for projects that offered viable solutions to real world challenges.
