GSGC, in coordination with Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, and Kennesaw State University, have formed a STEM outreach team focused on training and assigning undergraduate students as SPACE Ambassadors to conduct STEM outreach presentations and hands-on demonstrations at K-12 schools, museums, and other educational arenas in the metro Atlanta area. Will update as more GSGC academic affiliates join this program offering support to additional areas of Georgia. More information and a request form can be found here.
Georgia Space Grant Consortium’s number one goal is helping educate Georgia’s students. These are resources that will benefit parents who are now homeschooling their children due to COVID 19 quarantine. You will find a list of virtual experiences, activities and experiments, as well as a list of home school resources. GSGC will update this page as more resources become available.
