    Please join us for the 2022 GYSTC Summer STEM Institute. This hands-on and exploratory institute will engage teachers as learners as they make the key items of each exploration. Along the way, we will discuss key concepts, share ideas, and build our repertoire of interesting and engaging STEM learning lessons. Each teacher will participate in a variety of STEM Challenges, Siemens Activities, and Top 10 STEM Explorations in their grade band (K-2, 3-5, 6-8). During each lesson, the incorporation of science, literacy, and vocabulary will be emphasized by including popular children’s literature books and visual vocabulary cards. Lessons will utilize a practical 3-D approach to instruction that integrates standards, engineering practices, and cross-cutting concepts. Participants will also receive a notebook of each lesson.

Please Help Support GYSTC

GYSTC’s unique profile and proven track record in addressing the critical and underserved areas of STEM education are our greatest strengths. However, we are challenged by the need to maintain and increase our revenue in a time of more needed virtual learning. One obvious solution is to work harder, smarter and more creatively to devise innovative programs that will compel support; we are doing that! This year, GYSTC served 31,358 students and teachers in 245 schools from 89 school districts. GYSTC provided nearly $1 million for supplemental STEM education for Georgia teachers and students in FY 2021! Empowering students for STEM careers is what we do!
