Schools, Organizations, and Companies celebrate sixth annual Georgia STEM Day
Georgia STEM Day will be held May 4, 2018
ATLANTA, GA -- April 17, 2018 -- 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 thousands of students, educators, and professionals are participating in a statewide celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education on May 4, 2018.
Governor Deal has signed a proclamation recognizing May 4th 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 STEM Day is powered by Learning Blade © to deliver specific programming to 5 – 9th on and beyond STEM Day. And we’re excited to partner with organizations like Georgia Aquarium, Fernbank, Zoo Atlanta, the Jekyll Island Sea Turtle Center and Barnes and Noble all of whom are 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 is excited to see the continued partnerships between education, business and community partners come to fruition on STEM Day in its sixth year,” said Brian Valeyko, Board Chair of TAG Education Collaborative. “As schools continue to participate, we’re inspired to see valuable partnerships being formed between schools and STEM related businesses. And we’re encouraged by the innovative activities being planned to engage students in STEM and empower them through exposure to potential career pathways.”
