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.

Georgia Ports Authority

A trip to any mall will give you a look at thousands of items that weren’t created down the street. Many of them were imported from distant lands. And the Georgia Ports Authority in Savannah…the fourth largest port in the country…is the point of entry for, quite literally, tons of them. The Georgia Ports Authority has a job for just about any interest.

North Georgia Canopy Tours

Who says physics can’t be fun? They can be very entertaining when you use them to go zip lining. And that’s what we do at North Georgia Canopy Tours in Lula. Of course we go zip lining with a focus on physics and environmental education. That means getting employees to explain how Isaac Newton’s basic laws come into play in their jobs.
