By 2018, there will be 218,000 Georgia job openings in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, with a significant shortage of qualified applicants to fill them.
 
TAG-Ed’s mission is to strengthen Georgia’s future workforce by providing students with relevant, hands on STEM learning opportunities by uniting Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) resources with leading education initiatives.
 
Through key partnerships with education organizations and technology businesses, TAG-Ed aims to:

•  Support middle and high school students in generating a high level of enthusiasm for STEM-oriented curriculum.
•  Create opportunities among low-income, underserved youth to unleash their talents and pursue STEM education.
•  Facilitate public/private partnerships between Georgia’s K-12 education system and technology business community.
•  Connect students to reputable STEM programs to encourage lifelong STEM learning.


 
Major accomplishments include:

•  Establishing first Georgia STEM Day: an innovative celebration of STEM education engaging 600,000 students statewide in 2014.
•  Matching over 500 students in mentored internships in over 100 technology companies.
•  Providing over 200 students from underserved communities with valuable, one-on-one interview training with technology professionals.
•  Awarding over $200,000 in scholarships to middle and high school students through challenging web and mobile app development competitions.

TAG-Ed plans to use Georgia Gives Day donations to provide post-secondary scholarships to middle and high school students, fund paid summer internships at non-profit and start-up organizations, and develop hands-on Georgia STEM Day programs and activities for K-12 audiences across the state.
