What is the IA experience?
In addition to a traditional high school curriculum, students will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and experiences through rigorous applications of their learning. Partnering with Georgia Tech’s CEISMC program, problem solving using design thinking, and participation in the AP Capstone program will give students the ability to dive deeper into their learning and develop knowledge beyond the core standards.
Partnership with CEISMC and Georgia Tech
The Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing (CEISMC) is a unit within the Office of the Provost at Georgia Tech. CEISMC serves as the primary connection point between Georgia Tech faculty and students and the preK-12 STEM education community.
CEISMC plays a key role in achieving the vision set forth in the Commission on Creating the Next (CNE) report by reducing the barriers between preK-12 and higher education by offering intensive, innovative professional development to practicing teachers, creating highly engaging STEM in-school and extracurricular STEM experiences for K-12 students.
Fulton County Schools and Innovation Academy have partnered with CEISMC to create a dynamic and rigorous set of challenges and projects that are designed to incorporate core standards and relevance to learning. Students will use design thinking to solve these complex problems.
