AG-Ed strengthens Georgia’s future workforce by providing students with relevant, hands-on STEM learning opportunities by connecting Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) resources with leading STEM education initiatives.

Formerly the TAG Foundation, we are a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization formed by the Technology Association of Georgia in 2002. Later, the organization’s name was rebranded to TAG Education Collaborative to facilitate our role as the leaders for K-12 STEM education in Georgia.

What Makes Us Stand Out

TAG-Ed plays a unique role in connecting Georgia students to local companies in order to expand the STEM education pipeline in our state. Through innovative initiatives and hands-on learning opportunities, we:

  • Provide life-changing summer internships for Georgia students
  • Teach interview & application skills to underserved students
  • Create statewide awareness campaigns, including Georgia STEM Day and Day of Code
  • Coordinate STEM brainstorming sessions by uniting industry thought leaders
  • Work with corporate partners, including Google, Code.org, Georgia Aquarium, and Turner
  • Grow the future STEM workforce in our state

Our 3-prong strategy

  • FEED

    We expose as many students as possible to the STEM sector, providing them with information about STEM careers and educational opportunities, through programs like Georgia Day of Code, Georgia STEM Day, and the STEM Education Awards.

  • FOSTER

    We dive deeper, connecting students to STEM educational opportunities through our corporate and community partners. We help place students into the STEM pipeline with our carefully-curated STEM Opportunities Directory.

  • ACCELERATE

    We provide the critical link between the classroom and careers by engaging students in High School Summer Internships, strengthening their professional skills, building industry relationships, and jumpstarting their future STEM careers in Georgia.
