ATLANTA (April 20, 2015) – TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed), the Technology Association of Georgia’s charitable organization dedicated to preparing the next-generation workforce, is proud to announce that over 500,000 students and educators are participating in a statewide celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education on May 8, 2015, and registration continues to grow.
The Georgia legislature passed House Resolution 819 and Senate Resolution 69, both recognizing May 8th as Georgia STEM Day. In order to continue fostering growth and support for the program, TAG-Ed is collaborating with the Georgia Department of Education and over 40 Georgia education institutions, associations, and STEM-based companies.
“One of the programs that TAG-Ed offers to students is a grade level based STEM Quiz Bowl provided by HIFI Kids. Students in 3rd- 12th grade are able to log-on as individuals or as a class and test their general STEM knowledge. Upon completion, students receive their score as well as a printable certificate of achievement. HiFiKids is very proud to be partner with TAG Education Collaborative on such a high impact STEM day,”says Mr. Sayankar, Founder/CEO HiFiKids Corporation
“We are excited to work with HiFi Kids again in our third annual Georgia STEM Day,” said Katie Dion, senior director of programs and Partnerships for TAG-Ed. “Our participating schools really enjoyed the STEM quiz bowl program last year, and we are pleased to offer it again in 2015.”
STEM Day is a statewide opportunity for schools, students, teachers, and companies to raise awareness, celebrate and engage in innovative, hands-on activities involving STEM in order to help students make the critical connection between the classroom and future career opportunities.
“TAG-Ed and our community partners are thrilled to see the impact that STEM Day is having in its third year,” said Michael Robertson, executive director of TAG Education Collaborative. “As schools continue to register on our website, we are excited to see the assortment of activities being planned, such as field trips to STEM-related industries or engineering competitions. It’s inspiring to see valuable partnerships being formed between schools and STEM businesses as a result of this initiative.”
