A strong foundation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) will put your child on the road to success in school and beyond. Important critical thinking skills will cultivate the great thinkers and innovators of tomorrow and promote a better educated public. And, graduates in the STEM fields will have great job prospects. Young children ask many questions, just like scientists. But by the time kids get to middle school, many think that science is hard and means memorizing a lot of facts. Far too many kids never get a chance to explore and engage in science as it’s done in the real world by scientists. The time has come to make a change and help all students develop a scientific way of thinking that will prepare them to be informed citizens and ready for college and careers. The new Science Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE)—developed by teachers, scientists, leaders in science education, and other stakeholders from around the state—focus on the big ideas in science and emphasize the practices scientists use every day, such as planning investigations, developing models, and designing solutions.
