GYSTC provides teacher training workshops, field study and professional learning courses and assemblies, camps and other activities for students to increase interest in science, math and technology at an early age. Believing that students can be discouraged from pursuing science and math if teachers and parents are uncomfortable with these areas, GYSTC provides "hands on" innovative ways to teach and study science, math and technology. It is a "grass roots" local effort, both with direction and funding. GYSTC is taking a leading role in helping teachers and school systems moving to the newly adopted Georgia Performance Standards and new science curriculum being introduced over the next few years.
