Everyday Georgia

GOALS: The Everyday Georgia project brings together students from diverse disciplines to compile and share the personal stories of people from across the state who have a connection to Georgia Tech research. Through audio interviews, photographs, written narratives, and a podcast launching in 2019, the project shares Georgians’ challenges and accomplishments and their vital role in Creating the Next at Georgia Tech.
