Written by: Hannah Rushing, digital production

Last week, we joined educators across the state in celebrating Georgia STEM Day in collaboration with TAG-Ed. Georgia STEM Day is an event to raise awareness and encourage activities involving science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We were able to welcome over 3,000 students to this celebration to participate in STEM-related activities, enabling us to showcase the huge range of STEM careers at Georgia Aquarium.
