The STEAM Asset map is a map designed to show where investments have been made in STEM and STEAMeducation across Georgia. STEM/ STEAM are acronyms for the subjects of Science Technology Engineering (Arts) and Math. This map contains the following layers:
Schools: Information on all Georgia public schools, including demographic information of the school and neighborhood, student achievement in STEM fields, and whether those schools have been STEM or STEAM certified by the Georgia Department of Education.
Out of School Opportunities: Opportunities for students to participate in STEM or STEAM activities outside of school, including where these activities are located and when they take place. These opportunities were reported by partner organizations and through self-reporting, and we present them with no judgment as to the quality of each. Please contact individual programs for more information.
- Grants: Philanthropic investments in STEM and STEAM throughout the state.
- Tract Conditions: Filters indicating the concentration throughout the state of the following:
- Children below 200% of the Poverty Line
- Families below the Poverty Line
- Local Conditions Index
- Governor’s Office of Student Achievement Report Cards
- STEM and STEAM schools: STEM Georgia, a division of the Georgia Department of Education
Out of School Opportunities
Many of these opportunities were self-reported or reported through a collection of associates. These opportunities are presented with no indication or judgment of the quality or nature of the programs. Anyone wishing to know more about opportunities presented is encouraged to inquire with the specific program of interest. Some of our most important partners in gathering these opportunities are as follows:
- TAG-Ed, Education Collaborative, a division of the Technology Association of Georgia(TAG)
- Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network, GSAN
- Division of Family & Children Services, Afterschool Care Program
Information on philanthropic and state investment into STEM and STEAM education was collected through surveying known Georgia grant-making institutions and researching investments through public databases.
