Atlanta Metro Area

Agnes Scott College

Supporting K-12 Astronomy Outreach at Bradley Observatory and Delafield Planetarium
Bradley Observatory has had an active K-12 outreach program for over two decades. The Observatory has school group visits to the Observatory, and nighttime visits to local schools. This outreach program is largely voluntary, but work-study students or student volunteers can also help.

Kennesaw State University

KSU NASA Applied Leadership Program
The overall goal of the Applied Leadership Program is to facilitate college students (STEM majors) in developing the leadership skills and knowledge needed to assist pre-college students in becoming more successful in STEM areas and to increase the college and pre-college students’ exposure to the career options of the space science industry. The primary objective is to continue to operate and improve an existing program in which 24 STEM scholars from the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) participate in a year-long training session that trains the students to be able to understand some of the factors that enhance the learning of STEM concepts and how such concepts relate to the missions of NASA.
KSU NASA Pre-college STEM Enrichment
The goal of this program is to help pre-college students improve their performance in STEM subjects. The objectives are to have the students readily recognize STEM related principles, employ the steps of the scientific method, and relate STEM topics to their daily lives. The program consists of ten weeks of activities for 30 high school students who will be invited to participate in an enrichment program that focuses on STEM subjects. The program will meet once each week over a course of four, 5-week sessions. During the program, the KSU college students will work with college faculty to deliver hands-on lessons to pre-college students.

Morehouse College

Nuclear, Materials, and Space Sciences (NuMaSS) Summer Enrichment Program
The Nuclear, Materials, and Space Science (NuMaSS) Enrichment Program of the Department of Physics & Dual Degree Engineering Program at Morehouse College sets out to address the increasing need for the creation of a next generation STEM workforce. This science program caters to middle and high school students who desire an opportunity to engage in college courses and college laboratories, thus strengthening and reinforcing their fundamental science and mathematics skills. During the 4-week, commuter experience, approximately 30 rising 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders are exposed to curriculum focused in the 3 areas of Nuclear, Materials, and Space Sciences.

Orbit Education

Beyond the Shuttle Competition
Beyond the Shuttle provides middle school students the opportunity to demonstrate their 3D design skills. The competition will require participants to create an innovative vehicle that will take humans to the Moon, Mars, and beyond using 3D design software of their choosing. The competition will also require them to research past manned space vehicles and describe their unique approach for future space travel. The activityengages middle school students in the engineering design process; provide a pipeline activity that requires the use of 3D design software; provide activities that require research and communication skills; expose students to NASA's missions of human exploration and future manned missions to ISS, the Moon, Mars, etc.
High School Intern Program
Orbit will serve as a conduit between the high schools and STEM internship opportunities by recruiting students, placing students, checking internships to make sure they complement high school curriculum, and administering evaluations. Students who are eligible for the internship programs are rising juniors and seniors in public and private schools in Georgia.
K-12 Student Enrichment
OEI provides 4 summer educational enhancement programs to 100 high school students demonstrating the engineering design process. Students use SolidWorks designs to create interactive programs that demonstrate the workings and assembly of their design. Students will be exposed to the process of communicating engineering principles as currently used in industry.


Albany State University

Engineering Experience to Strengthen High and Middle School Science Education
Albany State University conducts activities annually to foster an environment of understanding and enthusiasm toward engineering profession among high and middle school students and their parents in southwest Georgia. An annual balsa wood model bridge building competition has been held since 2003 during National Engineers Week. Student teams build the model bridges to very stringent specifications prior to the contest which are tested by professional engineers from the local industry. The bridges are scored by the ratio of breaking load to the empty weight and top three teams are recognized with prizes. There are also Saturday workshops for high school students to work with manufacturing equipment in the Engineering Laboratory that consists of a research wind tunnel, programmable robots, CNC machine, CAD software, 3D scanner/printer.


Armstrong Atlanta State University

Each One Teach One (EOTO 2014)
EOTO pairs elementary school students in Savannah Chatham County with mentors who are undergraduate engineering students from Armstrong State University. The program involves weekly visits in which elementary school students are tutored in deficit areas and simultaneously introduced to engineering concepts via hands on projects. The program typically employs six to eight undergraduate students as mentors.
Future Leaders in Engineering and Technology (FLET 2014)
This program is for high school students interested in engineering careers (particularly NASA related). It allows students to tap into their own ingenuity, creativity and mechanical aptitude through competitive engineering design. All local high schools in Chatham county and surrounding areas are contacted to provide an engineering design team (4-6 students). Each team will develop a concept and prototype eligible for competition promoted by Armstrong State University’s Engineering Program. Selected engineering college students will assist teachers who have volunteered to coach individual teams.


Fort Valley State University

Cooperative Development Energy Program (CDEP)
The objective of CDEP’s M-SEA program is to provide a continuous pipeline for minority and female students from 9th grade through the PhD majoring in STEM disciplines. The students selected to participate in M-SEA are academically-talented and considered the cream of the crop in their respective schools. These students are recruited throughout the nation and are academically prepared to take on the challenging classroom and laboratory sessions taught by the faculty. M-SEA is a learning experience that goes beyond what the students are normally taught at their middle schools and high schools. The professors expose the students to advance mathematical concepts, hands-on laboratory experiments, and mentoring activities. Also, M-SEA inspires the students to pursue careers in STEM disciplines by the excellent field trips. M-SEA consists of four different academies made up of four academic classifications, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students.

Mercer University

Robotics Workshop for Middle Georgia First Robotics Teams
The Robotics workshops for students and coordinators cover all aspects of the FIRST Robotics Competition. Students learn sensor characteristics and sensor fusion and their relationship to actuators in the context of autonomous programming, students gain ideas and strategies on how they could solve or improve on previous year's designs.

Museum of Aviation

Museum of Aviation Foundation STEM Summer Camps
The Museum of Aviation Foundation Education Center’s National STEM Academy aims to educate, engage and inspire students and teachers in the foundations and innovations of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through motivating workforce development programs. It offers exceptional learning experiences to challenge students to apply theoretical knowledge of science and math in a problem-solving context.


University of West Georgia
