STOCKBRIDGE, GA (CBS46) -

Students across Georgia are learning first-hand that if they pay attention in science and math class, they might just land a pretty cool career one day.

The Georgia STEM Day is being celebrated May 3 for most schools. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It originated with the Technology Association of Georgia Education Collaborative, a non-profit organization. 

Students at Red Oak Elementary are celebrating a day early because of a conflict with the school's calendar.

Professionals from Georgia Power and the Henry County Fire Department are on hand to demonstrate for the kids how science, technology, engineering and math play important roles in their jobs.

Firefighters helped second-grade students by dropping specially-wrapped eggs from the top of an extended ladder truck. The idea was to see whose egg had enough padding to survive the fall.
