Triple Helix receives Outstanding Website Award
The GK-12 Triple Helix website received an Outstanding Website Award at the National Science Foundation’s GK-12 conference held in Washington DC March 16-18. The site was one of two top websites recognized nationwide.
The Triple Helix website is an invaluable tool for not only organizing and publicizing our project, but in developing the Triple Helix Community.
Visitors to the site are able to read about the accomplishments of our participants and find information about the Triple Helix program and activities. Moreover, visitors can make their own contribution by submitting comments to News and Events, journal/blog entries and Lessons and Activities.
“One of the goals of our program is to avoid a one-way trickle-down of knowledge, but rather explore the possibilities for a ‘triple helix’ collaboration … to engage university, GK-12 as well as the community to take an active and ongoing role in the activities of our program” notes program PI, Ron Eglash. As the activity of the site increases, the Triple Helix Community grows! We are honored that the National Science Foundation has recognized the quality of our web presence and our program.
