Students Practice Hands-on STEM Activities To Define Problems And Determine Solutions


"In Georgia, young students often feel disconnected from the real world when studying math and science, a perception that poses serious challenges to the state's future economic and workforce development, according to a series of forums held in Georgia between 2006 and 2008.

But a new initiative just outside Atlanta--a partnership between the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Griffin-Spalding County School system, and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF)--is trying to change this. The NSF project, known as AMP-IT-UP, is using a novel approach to encourage student creativity, and make these important courses come alive."
