The Georgia Department of Education is dedicated to preparing students for 21st Century workplace careers by providing high quality educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. In Georgia, STEM education is defined as an integrated curriculum (as opposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics taught in isolation) that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory project/problem-based learning, and student-centered development of ideas and solutions. The saturation of technology in most fields means that all students – not just those who plan to pursue a STEM profession – will require a solid foundation in STEM to be productive members of the workforce.

It is vital that our classrooms connect young people to the knowledge and practices that inspire creative thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers that prepare them to accept the responsibilities of global citizenship in an ever-changing world.  The GA STEM Forum allows us to explore how schools are integrating content into real-world settings, infusing unique business partnerships into the classroom, and providing experiential learning opportunities for students to more fully investigate the world around them through foundations in STEM/STEAM education.

As the state’s premier annual STEM event, the GA STEM Forum brings together leaders, innovators, and champions from across the state that are united by a passion to advance excellence in STEM education for all students.
