This is "technically" where the Fast Forward series begins—at a career fair in Dalton. Starting with an overview of Georgia-based STEM careers and companies, we include a look at Shaw Industries and its work with green technologies.

Clayton County Wetlands Ecohydrologist talks about his 30 years of experience in water reclamation.
A visit to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta proves to us, and hopefully to our audience, that a simple interest in math and technology can lead to a wide variety of career opportunities.

They include a description of what this institution is and does and a discussion of the gold standard and exactly what gives money its value.
