Overview

STEM@GTRI is the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s K12 outreach program. Funded by the State of Georgia, the mission of STEM@GTRI is to inspire, engage, and impact Georgia educators and students by providing access to experts in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Through meaningful partnerships and collaborations, we strive to increase STEM literacy, improve student academic performance in STEM subjects, provide awareness of and encourage students to pursue educational and career opportunities in STEM fields, and provide resources for teachers to strengthen their STEM-related curriculum.

STEM@GTRI customizes professional development experiences for educators, connects students and classrooms to Georgia Tech labs and researchers, and brings hands-on, fun, and relevant programming to STEM outreach events across Georgia. We leverage STEM@GTRI State funding through grants and partnerships to bring additional STEM programming to K12 students in Georgia.
