This year, GYSTC is proud to recognize 27 outstanding educators from 19 Georgia School Districts with the 2024 Don Cargill STEM Scholar Award. These educators were chosen for their dedication to STEM education and their ability to engage students in imaginative classroom lessons. Each awardee will receive $500 to execute their STEM project, putting their innovative ideas into action and furthering the cause of STEM education.
What do adults do at work all day? Many students hold misconceptions about STEM careers and who can pursue them. GYSTC is actively developing a collection of short videos and lessons designed to familiarize students with individuals and careers in STEM. The goal is not only to showcase these careers but also to make them accessible to students by introducing real people engaged in the work.

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! Empowering students for STEM careers is what we do!
