Pardon Our Progress

GSTA's site is undergoing major renovations to modernize our site, bring you new resources to support the GSE, and streamline navigation. During this process, you will notice pages missing.  These will be restored with new content ASAP.  Please be patient as we make these changes and check back often to see our progress.

GSTA is committed to supporting excellence in science teaching for the students of Georgia. GSTA works to CONNECT, INFORM, SUPPORT, and ADVOCATE for science teachers in Georgia. We also seek to PARTNER with like-minded formal and informal science education organizations to further GSTA’s mission and goals.
