GA STEM DAY 2021
WHAT IS STEM DAY ?
Since 2013, the Technology Association of Georgia – Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed) has been leading a statewide campaign to encourage schools and classrooms to host STEM/STEAM programming on the first Friday in May. No matter the date, or if it’s one hour, one day, or a whole week of STEM activities, the point is to make a focused celebration on STEM.
This year we are celebrating a Virtual STEM Day, and it can have all the stem activities and more!
