S8P2

Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the law of conservation of energy to develop arguments that energy can transform from one form to another within a system.

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...

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...

Six Flags Over Georgia

There’s a man working at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell who claims to have the best job in North America. Who could pass up an opportunity to find out why? Not us! And it turns out there are a...

S8P2 a

Analyze and interpret data to create graphical displays that illustrate the relationships of kinetic energy to mass and speed and potential energy to mass and height of an object.

Six Flags Over Georgia

There’s a man working at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, who claims to have the best job in North America. Who could pass up an opportunity to find out why? Not us! And it turns out there are a lot of amazing jobs in this place. For example, they actually have jobs riding rides! And if you want to set yourself up for a job like this, it’ll help to learn some science. You’ll find out why.

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.
