The Triple Helix, Inc. is an international non-profit, non-partisan organization with 25 chapters involving over five hundred students from renowned universities and high schools worldwide. Together, these students form a global society capable of producing some of the world’s future leaders in science, business, policy, ethics, and law. As a pioneering student-run forum of interdisciplinary discussion, The Triple Helix seeks to unite students of diverse intellectual interests through its dynamic forums. We are committed to being a unique, challenging, and exciting educational experience for both student and staff members.
The Triple Helix at Georgetown is a microcosmic representation of this. Throughout the year, The Triple Helix hosts numerous events that reflect the diversity of interests represented in the club. An example of this is the Science Café: an intimate discussion with one of Georgetown's own researchers or professors. These biweekly discussions have centered on topics ranging from the Ebola virus and its far-reaching consequences to the enduring debate between the improperly approached rift between religion and science. Although they occur less frequently than the Science Café discussions, the movie screenings hosted by The Triple Helix also cover a large array of topics, but tend to garner much attention often because of their relevant themes.
In addition to hosting intellectual discussions and events, The Triple Helix is first and foremost an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to perfecting and publishing student research and writing. The Triple Helix at Georgetown publishes two print publications throughout the year. The first is a small publication that is printed in January. The second and more anticipated publication, The Science in Society journal, is printed during the latter half of the academic year. The Triple Helix also maintains an online blog that supplements these infrequent print publications with short posts written by board members and staff writers.
