We began the Fast Forward series at a career fair in Dalton. Starting with an overview of Georgia-based STEM careers and companies, we included a look at Shaw Industries and their work with green technologies.
All animals should have it as good as the patients at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, where the staff is doing some richly rewarding work! The highlight of our visit was shooting a surgical procedure on an injured sea turtle named Sendac.

To help find the best STEM-related jobs in Georgia, we got a little help from Georgia’s top investigative unit—the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. We took an old-school detective approach, and discovered Teachable Moments on DNA and Latent Prints.
