Students in Inga Cashon’s foundations of engineering class at Bryan County High School May 6 launched rockets as part of Georgia STEM Day. This is the fourth year Cashon’s class has participated.

Students completed a unit on aerospace engineering and designed their rockets. Cashon said junior Cole Morrison planned and assisted with the activity. A video of the event can be seen at: Hg.

Georgia STEM Day is sponsored by TAG Education Collaborative, the Technology Association of Georgia’s charitable arm dedicated to preparing the next-generation workforce. The group says that in two years, there will be nearly 220,000 STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) jobs available in Georgia and not enough qualified applicants to fill them.
