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.
