Partnerships

The GW Virginia Science and Technology Campus has many partnerships, spanning academic, research, and community engagement efforts. The following are examples of existing partnerships, but is not a comprehensive listing.


Partnerships with Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS)

  • Science, Technology, and Engineering Day: This partnership with Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) captures students' imaginations while teaching them about career opportunities. Now going into its eight year, 130-150 LCPS high school students spend a day annually on GW’s campus experiencing hands-on workshops designed to illustrate different areas of academic study, research, and careers in the fields of science, technology, and engineering.
     
  • Genomics Summer Camp: GO GIRL (Genomic Opportunities for Girls In Research Labs) is an educational outreach program designed to provide a unique opportunity for young women interested in gaining hands-on laboratory experience in molecular biology and genomics. This annual four-day summer program is a joint effort between The Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy, The George Washington University, Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), and is funded by a grant to LCPS from Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
     
  • Art Partnerships: GW has been hosting the Young Artist Series exhibits on campus for more than ten years. The student art exhibits feature elementary, middle, and high school artwork year round. Artwork from different schools is assigned to our gallery area on a rotational basis. The Campus also hosts an annual exhibit of 2-D and 3-D artwork created by art educators working in the Loudoun County Public School system. All of these exhibits are open to the public.
     

Teachers in Industry Project

The Teachers in Industry Project (GW TIP) is an initiative to provide middle and high school core content teachers the opportunity to experience firsthand the work environment for which they are preparing their students. Externship experiences at top regional businesses allow teachers in the English, math, science, social studies and CTE content areas to become aware of the core knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the STEM-focused 21st century workforce.
