The Office of STEM Education collaborates with faculty, staff and students within UGA's schools, colleges, units and organizations across campus, as well as with K-12 teachers and administrators, to create a collective impact toward common goals. Each group or individual may still pursue thier own goals with a broader understanding of how their efforts can contribute to the University of Georgia STEM goals. Some of the collaborative STEM projects are below:
|K12 Outreach||UGA||Create robots that we use in 6th grade classes to practice coding.|| CodeBots
