By extending STEM-focused initiatives virtually, TAG-Ed can help to empower students from rural and underserved educational systems with quality resources, contributing to the overall development of a diverse and future-ready workforce.

“As we help to usher in a new era of STEM leaders in Georgia and beyond, it is our collective responsibility to nurture the curiosity and potential of every student,” said Dr. Loretta Daniels, Interim Executive Director of TAG-Ed. “Through various resources and programs, we are dedicated to developing the current and future workforces of Georgia.”
