Former Partnerships with Loudoun County Public Schools

  • Science, Technology and Engineering Day (STE Day): This partnership with Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) captured students' imaginations while teaching them about career opportunities. LCPS high school students spent a day 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.
  • The Teachers in Industry Project (GW TIP) was 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.
