Schools, Organizations, and Companies celebrate fifth annual Georgia STEM Day
Georgia STEM Day will be held May 5, 2017
ATLANTA (May 5, 2017) – 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 600,000 students, educators, and professionals are participating in a statewide celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education on May 5, 2017.
Governor Deal has signed a proclamation recognizing May 5th as Georgia STEM Day. In order to continue fostering growth and support for the program, TAG-Ed is collaborating on programs with Georgia education institutions, associations, and STEM-based companies. This year partner organizations like Georgia Aquarium, Chehaw, Zoo Atlanta and the Jekyll Island Sea Turtle Center are all hosting student centered events in celebration of STEM.
STEM Day is a statewide opportunity for schools, students, teachers, and companies to raise awareness by celebrating and engaging in innovative, hands-on activities involving STEM. Georgia STEM Day helps students make the critical connection between the classroom and future career opportunities.
“TAG-Ed and our partners are thrilled to see the continued support and engagement STEM Day is having in its fifth year,” said Phil Regnault, Board Chair of TAG Education Collaborative. “As schools continue to participate, we are encouraged by the innovative activities being planned to excite students about STEM. It’s inspiring to see valuable partnerships being formed between schools and STEM related businesses as a result of this initiative.”
