One recommendation for keeping America competitive and prosperous in the 21st century is to involve K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers in a research experience at a college or university.
The G.I.F.T. (Georgia Intern-Fellowships for Teachers) Program, a partnership between UGA and Georgia Tech, allows K-12 teachers to experience the “real-life” application of classroom subjects in research settings.
UGA scientists are encouraged to attend one of two information sessions from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 21 or 9-10 a.m. Oct. 22 in room 307 of Conner Hall.
To register contact Susan Reinhardt, the UGA G.I.F.T. program coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (229) 386-3050
