students in a science classroom

"Path to Certification" is the latest topic in GPB Education's production of School Stories, a collection of engaging videos that highlights innovation and creativity in Georgia's public schools. 

Developed in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Education, "Path to Certification" features three Georgia schools that are working toward a STEM or STEAM certification. STEM/STEAM education is an integrated curriculum that is driven by exploratory project-based learning and student-centered development of ideas and solutions. In the "Path to Certification" collection, viewers will hear from administrators, teachers, students, and community partners about their school's unique approach to engage learners in STEM/STEAM concepts. 

"Every path to STEM or STEAM certification looks different," says Laura Evans, Director of Education at Georgia Public Broadcasting. "We are excited to share how different schools are working toward getting this honorable distinction."

The three featured schools include Mulberry Creek Elementary School in Harris County, Fannin County Middle School in Fannin County, and Hiram High School in Paulding County.
