The Georgia Chief Science Officers (CSO) initiative will cultivate a cadre of diverse student leaders in middle and high schools across the state, enhancing their leadership, communication, and advocacy skills to meet the growing demand for these skills in STEM careers. The CSO program empowers students with a voice in STEM programming at their schools and in their communities. CSOs meet with legislators, school board members, and policymakers to lend their voices to conversations about STEM education and workforce development in our state. CSOs build relationships with STEM industry mentors and connect with companies and careers
in their region.
In 2018-2019, we are launching the program with 24 students from Atlanta Public Schools, DeKalb County School District, and Fulton County Schools, with plans to expand to 100 students statewide within 3 years. Georgia’s program is led by Atlanta Science Festival with sponsorship from UPS and Georgia Tech Research Institute. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
