ATLANTA (April 29, 2015) – In recognition of the vital importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to the state, Governor Deal has signed a proclamation declaring May 8th as the third annual Georgia STEM Day.
Georgia 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 Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed), the driving force behind the establishment of STEM Day, is proud to announce that already over 600,000 students and educators are participating in this year’s celebration.
“TAG-Ed and our corporate and community partners are thrilled to see the impact that STEM Day is having this year,” said Michael Robertson, executive director of TAG Education Collaborative. “We thank Governor Deal for his ongoing support of this initiative as it continues to develop and gain support across our state.”
