The Georgia Youth Science and Technology Centers (GYSTC) is dedicated to promoting student interest and achievement in
science and mathematics. As our mission states, Georgia Youth Science and Technology Centers, Inc. strives to provide
quality programs for teachers of STEM subjects that improve the teaching and learning process at the kindergarten through
eighth grade levels. We aim to stimulate a child’s interest from an early age to enjoy, not fear, the knowledge of science.
In addition, GYSTC’s services continue to enhance teacher quality and student achievement in science and math through
innovative programming. Since 1989, GYSTC has provided supplemental STEM training to nearly 2 million K-8 teachers and
students. GYSTC provides these services through a network of 10 regional centers and programs located throughout the state in many of the
highest need areas.
