Dedicated to excellence in science teaching and learning
The Science Education Center promotes access, interest, and participation in science by people of all ages and backgrounds. The center collaborates with organizations at Georgia College and beyond the campus to offer courses, teacher professional development institutes, curriculum development, research experiences, scientific competitions, camps, community events. Programs provide students, teachers, and the community opportunities to examine the role of science in life, in education, and to the economy.
