Twenty students from Dade County Middle School arrived at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta on Monday, March 5, accompanied by their teachers, Dr. Tom Randolph and Ms. Pamela Stone. Students brought either their personal business plans or a psychological study geared toward changing behavior. Both projects were shared by the students to representatives, senators and lobbyists as they moved around the Capitol on multiple floors. Students were instructed to approach legislators and lobbyists with the results of their classroom work, asking questions and compiling results to culminate their research.
Above, students are pictured with Senator Jeff Mullis (left, front) and Representative John Deffenbaugh (right front) on the Capitol stairs. Both legislators and teachers look forward to other groups participating in this manner at the Capitol.
