Apply now for fall session of STEM program at Fernbank




The Science, Engineering, Math and Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) program at Fernbank Science Center in Decatur is now accepting applications for its fall session for students in grades 4 to 8.

Sessions will be held on seven consecutive Saturday mornings, beginning September 14.

SEMAA is sponsored by NASA, so participation is free. NASA provides guidelines for the program; however, be aware that the local SEMAA program is not run by NASA personnel.

Although the stated mission of SEMAA is to increase participation in the sciences among under-served populations, admission is open to all, regardless of ethnicity.

You do not have to be a resident of DeKalb County to apply. Spaces are limited and will fill quickly.

    Good Evening, I would like very much to have a contact number to reach the SEMMA Program. I am a teacher in Buford, Georgia . I use to work for the SEMMA program in Nashville, TN as a third grade science teacher. I talk about the SEMMA Program to my parents. But I don’t know of a contact number to give to my parent. Could you please help me.

      Thanks for writing. I paid a quick visit to the website of Fernbank Science Center, which was the host site for SEMAA in 2013, when this post went up. It doesn’t look like they have SEMAA there anymore. After finding that, I did a Google search for SEMAA and found the NASA page which says the program has been discontinued. https://www.nasa.gov/education/semaa
