Rossville Middle school is one of the Georgia schools being recognized for excellence in science, technology, engineering and math education.
The Technology Association of Georgia and the TAG Education Collaborative announced the winners for the Second Annual STEM Education Awards at a special awards ceremony held in Savannah.
At Rossville Middle, Teachers use definedstem.com as their main resource to develop STEM-based projects for their students each semester.
These projects provide students with an application of the curriculum standards and connect learning to careers.
Math and Science teachers attended a training session by Dave Reese with definedstem.com to best utilize this resource.
Two connection classes were created to promote STEM learning, and Inner City Aquaponics helped to create a mini catfish farm at the school pond.
Next year, an agricultural teacher will collaborate with the school's science, technology and math teachers to further promote STEM learning at Rossville Middle.
