GE Atlanta Recognized At The Second Annual STEM Education Awards

GE Atlanta was recently presented the Second Annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Education Award for Corporate Outreach by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and the TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed). GE’s collaborative effort to ignite minds, power robotics and educate future leaders through various activities in the Atlanta area led to the recognition over companies such as Cisco, IBM and UPS.

“STEM education is the foundation for the future leaders of our company. GE focuses on mentoring and sponsoring STEM programs that are well aligned with our growth values,” said Craig Foster, engineering manager of GE Power & Water. “We need scientists and engineers to help us solve the biggest challenges the world has to offer.”

The awards were created to recognize and celebrate individuals and organizations for their outstanding effort and achievement in supporting and promoting STEM education in Georgia. The three programs that helped GE gain the honor were the Igniting Minds sponsorship, FIRST™ Robotics Competition volunteer efforts and a partnership with the Georgia Tech Women in Engineering (WIE). The complete details for each program are included below:
  • Igniting Minds is a program sponsored by GE that aims to strengthen middle school students’ abilities in the area of math. This program uses interactive activities to make abstract concepts real for students.
  • Through the FIRST™ Robotics Competition GE volunteers dedicate hundreds of hours each year to helping students learn, love and experience real engineering. Students also develop life skills in team work, problem solving, professionalism, leadership and executive presentation.
  • The Georgia Tech WIE partnered with GE to host a week-long day camp for middle school girls. This fun and interactive camp gave girls an early introduction to the exciting world of STEM with the goal of inspiring them to consider college majors and careers in these areas.

“With women under-represented in STEM fields, the GE Women’s Network developed the GE Girls program to share our enthusiasm for these careers,” said Denise Cullinan, vice president marketing of GE Capital and co-leader of GE Girls Atlanta. “We are happy to be recipients of the Corporate Outreach category and will continue to foster a lasting interest in STEM among girls in our community.”
