WW Georgia Teaching Fellows who received WW-Goizueta enrichment microgrants for the 2016–2017 school year presented their projects to their peers in May. The symposium included poster presentations from each of the microgrant recipients, a keynote address from a local high school science administrator, and a panel discussion.

This year’s grants allowed Fellows to purchase supplies like virtual reality headsets, Chromebooks, and specialty lab equipment, to travel to national teaching conferences, and to coordinate service learning projects. During the symposium, recipients shared details of their projects, talked about the impact on students, and offered words of advice to the other WW Georgia Teaching Fellows and guests in attendance. Dr. William Nye, science administrator at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross, Georgia and an adjunct professor at Piedmont College, provided a keynote address, speaking of the ripple effect these projects can have on the departments, schools, and communities where Fellows teach. During the panel discussion, selected Fellows shared their triumphs, challenges, tips, and reflections from the year.

In 2015 the Goizueta Foundation of Atlanta made a three-year, $910,000 grant to provide professional enrichment for WW Georgia Teaching Fellows working in the metro Atlanta area. The funding aims to benefit not only the Fellows, but also the schools and communities where they teach, their students, and the other educators with whom they work.
