How prepared are Georgia's K12 students and citizens to meet the needs of being a STEM-ready workforce? What is the current state, specifically looking at Computer Science, and the opportunities as well as challenges for preparing our students as well as our teachers to be STEM literate and STEM ready? This discussion will also explore the role or the opportunity for cities and communities to work with large companies who move in to support the growth/development of educational and other resource needs for these communities? Join us on November 12th as we address these questions and open the discussion for supporting Georgia to be the technical capital of the east.
