SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah-Chatham Public Schools System held their 4th annual Student Success and STEM Festival at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center Saturday on Hutchinson Island.

The event provides information about the performing arts, aeronautics, medical studies and other areas of interest that may not be currently available to students.

STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, focused on jobs students can work to fill in those areas of study during the event.

Organizers say they are thrilled with the increase in the event turnout over the past few years.

"We've got a lot of parents, a lot of family, a lot of community members and a lot of students coming out today to our Students Success Expo and STEM Festival," said Kurt Hetager, SCCPSS Communications Director.

"Its an event that in its 4th year and it continues to get bigger and better every single year. With the community support, we can't thank them enough."

Organizers are particularly excited this year because a new STEM academy will be opening at Bartlet Middle School next year.
