What can a high school student do?

Our most frequently asked question by potential host companies is, “What kind of projects can a high school student even do?” TAG-Ed interns are carefully screened and matched based on the host company’s application. These are not your average students — many have 4.0 GPAs, incredible extracurricular involvements, and most importantly, a passion for STEM careers. By being a mentor, you are shaping a student’s career path and strengthening Georgia’s future workforce.
