STEAM
In rural Georgia counties, STEAM programs are having an impact on kids, teenagers and adults. STEAM is designed to integrate science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics subjects into various education disciplines. The goal is to teach students how to think critically and use engineering or technology in creative approaches to real-world problems while building on students' mathematics and science base.

Precision Ag Award
A University of Georgia scientist’s dedication to educating Georgia farmers about the benefits of precision agriculture has garnered him international recognition. Wes Porter, a UGA Cooperative Extension precision agriculture and irrigation specialist, will receive the Educator/Researcher Award from the PrecisionAg Institute at the InfoAg Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, on Tuesday, July 23.
Founded in 1222, UNIPD — now home to UGA's dual master's degree program in sustainable agriculture — is considered the fifth-oldest university in the world. Located about 25 miles from Venice in northern Italy's Veneto region, the city of Padova is much older. Padova traces its roots to 1183 B.C. In addition to scores of notable faculty and alumni – Galileo Galilei taught mathematics at UNIPD for 17 years, and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus and Andrea Vesalio, the founder of modern anatomy, both studied there – the world's oldest botanical garden, established in 1545, is also located at the university.

UGA scientists Franklin West and Qun Zhao have draw comparisons between sensory and cognitive relevance found in swine and those previously established in humans. Collaborators in the UGA Regenerative Bioscience Center, West and Zhao have discovered that pig brains are even better platforms than previously thought for the study of human neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
