Things might not be looking great for Georgia Tech on the football field, but off it – particularly when it comes to STEM curriculums – the university remains among the nation’s best.  And in tiny Evans County in southeast Georgia, a local middle school has struck a partnership with Tech to help implement STEAM and STEM curriculum.  Claxton Middle School and the Center for Education Integrating Science Mathematics and Computing at the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus successfully applied for a Georgia Department of Education grant that will train teachers to implement Advanced Manufacturing and Prototyping Integrated To Unlock Potential (AMP-IT-UP) modules, teaching students relevant courses in the STEM field.  One unit, for example, could focus on the transfer of genetic information through reproduction, and how that impacts Evans County’s agricultural community.  Getting students started early in STEM will open doors for them in high school, and beyond, to enter into the 21st century economy.
