Teachers in Industry Project (GWTIP), hosted by the university's Science and Technology Campus in Ashburn, Va., paired 17 teachers with nine local industry leaders. Through full-time externships with local businesses, teachers learned what role STEM content and 21st century business practices play in turning wastewater into clean water for residents, creating cyber defenses for global networks, designing “green” systems for the construction industry and developing the latest advances in medical care. Following their experiences, teachers will work to integrate their new-found knowledge into their daily classroom curriculum.
