GoSTEM

 

GoSTEM is a collaboration between Georgia Tech and the Gwinnett County Public School District to enhance the educational experience of Latino students in Georgia and strengthen the pipeline of these students into post-secondary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education.

The project's long-term goal is to create a research-supported model for how technical universities, school systems, and philanthropic foundations can partner to promote academic achievement in STEM fields among Hispanic K-12 students. The GoSTEM model will include both programs that foster achievement within a defined cohort of students from one high school/middle school cluster at Gwinnett County Public Schools, specifically the Meadowcreek Cluster; and activities open to the broader community.

The GoSTEM Program has a number of partner-school programs to serve students in the Meadowcreek Cluster.  These programs include Pathways to College, Graduate Teaching Fellows, Parental Involvement Program, a Robotics Program, and STEM Summer Enrichment Opportunities.
