The College of Science and STEM Accelerator will be hosting high school students from Loudon County Public Schools (LCPS) who are all dual-enrolled in COS 120: Introduction to research. Students will be presenting posters from their year-long Independent Science Research projects.
The College of Science announces a research colloquium specifically for undergraduate research students. Participating students will present a poster at the 2017 Undergraduate Research Colloquium, which is open to the university community.
The purpose of this event is to showcase the variety of undergraduate research projects in the College to other students and to faculty in four categories Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Earth Sciences and STEM Learning & Education.

Please join us at the 4th Annual Fairfax County Elementary and Middle School Science and Engineering Fair organized by Pinnacle Academy and College of Science, George Mason University. Pinnacle Academy’s curriculum includes a heavy STEM emphasis and encourages students to think of learning material in context to real world applications. Annually, Pinnacle Academy students participate in a variety of academic competitions and a school-wide science fair. In collaboration with the STEM Accelerator at COS, Pinnacle Academy created this opportunity for elementary- and middle school students to share their projects on a larger scale and initiated this regional fair.
