SC2 c

Construct an explanation about the importance of molecular-level structure in the functioning of designed materials.

(Clarification statement: Examples could include why electrically conductive materials are often made of metal, flexible but durable materials are made up of long chained molecules, and pharmaceuticals are designed to interact with specific receptors.)

CSX

We pay a visit to CSX’s REDI Center in midtown Atlanta to talk with the fine folks of CSX about the 3,000 employees they have scattered about the state. REDI is the acronym for Railroad Education and Development Institute. That’s where most of their employees come to learn what it takes to work on the railroad, which also makes it a great place for us to learn more about CSX jobs.

KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia

Fast Forward travels to the West side of the state to clear up some misconceptions about modern factories. We visit KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point. This state-of-the-art facility rolls out one new car every minute, and we show the process—going from steel coils all the way to their test track.

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.
