ATLANTA (April 20th, 2015) – TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed), the Technology Association of Georgia’s charitable organization dedicated to preparing the next-generation workforce, is proud to announce that over 500,000 students and educators are participating in a statewide celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education on May 8, 2015, and registration continues to grow.
The Georgia legislature passed House Resolution 819 and Senate Resolution 69, both recognizing May 8th as Georgia STEM Day. In order to continue fostering growth and support for the program, TAG-Ed is collaborating with the Georgia Department of Education and over 40 Georgia education institutions, associations, and STEM-based companies.
STEM Day is a statewide opportunity for schools, students, teachers, and companies to raise awareness, celebrate and engage in innovative, hands-on activities involving STEM in order to help students make the critical connection between the classroom and future career opportunities.
“TAG-Ed and our community partners are thrilled to see the impact that STEM Day is having in its third year,” said Michael Robertson, executive director of TAG Education Collaborative. “As schools continue to register on our website, we are excited to see the assortment of activities being planned, such as field trips to STEM-related industries or engineering competitions.
