The Georgia Department of Education is dedicated to preparing students for the 21st Century workplace careers by providing high quality educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics(STEM) fields. In Georgia, STEM education is an integrated curriculum that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory project/problem-based learning, and student-centered development of ideas and solutions.

Woodlawn is excited to bring STEM based learning to our school. Our first STEM day planned for this school year will be on October 21st. We will need materials that you can provide from things that are around your house or you supply. Please consider being a partner with us through not only a donation of supplies, but a lending hand as well!October STEM Day Supply List
