Liberty County School System Launches
Snelson-Golden Middle School is excited to announce a pilot program incorporating the disciplines of STEM. This program uses science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in order to provide students with problem-based learning opportunities. Currently, all 8th graders are participating in the pilot program. The project is designed to guide and complete an in-depth research project that builds upon middle school earth, life, and physical science experiences. Through STEM, the students will find relevance to learning while promoting civic engagement in the community.
LCSS teachers have been meeting and planning with Georgia Southern University, Keep Liberty Beautiful, Jekyll Island 4-H Center, Office of Naval Research, Chatham Recycling Complex and Education Center, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Students have been working on preparing decomposition plots and submersibles which will provide students with a place-based research project at the end of the program. SGMS received a grant from the Office of Naval Research for $1,925 and a grant from Georgia Southern for $3,250 to help fund the program.
