About Georgia Chief Science Officers

Georgia Chief Science Officers (CSO) is a STEM leadership development program for middle and high school students, enhancing students’ leadership, communication, and project management skills. Students are empowered to lead STEM/STEAM initiatives at their schools and in their communities. CSOs build relationships with STEM industry mentors and connect with companies and careers in their region.

The program is part of the CSO International consortium, led by the SciTech Institute in Arizona. Georgia CSOs are joining more than 1000 other CSOs in Arizona, Oregon, Michigan, New York, Delaware, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, Mexico, Kuwait, and Kenya.

In 2022-2023, the program included 40 students from 20 schools in Atlanta, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, Marietta City, and Paulding counties.
