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 campus events, discussions, and publications.
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 rift between religion and science. Although they occur less frequently than the Science Café discussions, 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.
First and foremost, the Triple Helix is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to perfecting and publishing student research and writing. The Triple Helix at Georgetown publishes two editions throughout the year, once in January and once in April. The Triple Helix also maintains an online blog that supplements these infrequent print publications with short posts written by board members and staff writers.
