The Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA) in Marietta, Georgia a grades 3-5 school in the Marietta City School System has been named Georgia’s first official State Certified STEM School.  In an award ceremony with industry/community partners Lockheed Martin, Southern Polytechnic State University, and the American Civil Engineers Association, State School Superintendent Dr. John D. Barge presented the Georgia Department of Education award in front of the entire student body.  State certification affirms that MCAA has met the criteria to officially be considered a STEM school.  The criteria include school-wide project-based learning, a rigorous science and math curriculum, ubiquitous technology use, teacher collaboration time built into the school day, involved business/industry/community partnerships, and integrated instructional units to name a few.  The school not only teaches science every day to every child but every student also engages in an engineering design challenge in their daily STEM class.  Congratulations to Principal Jennifer Hernandez and the excellent teachers at The Marietta Center for Advanced Academics.
