There’s a big push underway at Georgia Tech to get more minority students into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – the four subjects better known as the STEM fields.
Tech has partnered with three Atlanta public high schools with the goal of doing just that through a program called Project ENGAGES.
ENGAGES is a competitive and intense high school science education program. Students involved in the program receive 12 months of research experience – which includes working full-time in Georgia Tech labs in the summer and 15 hours a week during the school year.
Project ENGAGES students Amadou Bah and Qwantavious Stigger and Ga Tech Professor Emeritus Bob Nerem discussed the program on “A Closer Look.”
