Southwire

We take our search for Georgia STEM careers to Carrollton, with a visit to Southwire, the largest manufacturer of wire and cable in North America. Here we cover the types of careers available at Southwire. And we shine a (well-wired) spotlight on Southwire's Engineering Academy for high school students. Teachable Moments include descriptions of electricity and root cause analysis.

Career Fair

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 their work with green technologies. Teachable Moments include an explanation of how to find the energy required to convert solids into liquids and gases.
