Published on: 1/24/2019

STEM/STEAM Program Specialist for the Georgia Department of Education, Ms. Felicia Cullars, visited the STEM Academy at Bartlett on Wednesday, January 23rd to present a banner in recognition of the school’s certification as a Georgia STEAM middle school last fall.  STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.  The STEM Academy at Bartlett was the state of Georgia’s first STEM-certified middle school and is just the second STEAM-certified middle school in the state.

 STEAM is the integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics infused with meaningful arts integration. To be awarded STEAM certification, schools must submit an application showcasing they meet specific criteria, including evidence of teacher collaboration, business and industry partnerships, high levels of math and science instruction, and an integrated, project-based STEAM curriculum. As well, multiple site visits with a team from the Georgia Department of Education are conducted to observe programs, interview faculty, students, parents, and community partners, and engage in student learning.
