Join local Georgia school district leaders to explore how to fuel a cultural shift around STEM teaching and learning. This innovative thought leadership event, co-hosted by Discovery Education and Cherokee County School District, will focus on how to create a shared STEM vision, provide professional learning to educators and administrators alike, and cultivate curiosity with instructional strategies to prepare students for tomorrow.

We will kick off this one-day event hearing from local school leaders surrounding topics such as Culture, Leadership, Engagement, and Growth. Attendees will then have the opportunity to join us in visiting local school sites to explore successful STEM strategies and useful resources within the STEM ecosystem.
