Technology group honors Kedron Elementary for Best STEM Day Activity



The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and the TAG Education Collaborative have named Kedron Elementary the winner of the Best STEM Day Activity in the fifth annual STEM Education Awards. Last spring, the school hosted a STEM Day event for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Students participated in activities that included robotics, engineering challenges, aerodynamics, digital animation, and architecture. PTO volunteer Stacie Kilgore organized the event, and collaborated with teachers at J.C. Booth Middle, McIntosh High, and Whitewater High to have students from those schools come to Kedron to work with the elementary students. “She was the driving force behind our STEM Day event. Many thanks to her for organizing such a wonderful day for our students,” said Dr. Julie Turner, Kedron Elementary principal.
