Between now and April 21, students and faculty can submit projects for the Innovations 2004 Student Expo and Exhibit of Work to be held the last week of April. Faculty members are asked to encourage their students to enter projects, as well as to display and demonstrate their own teaching and learning innovations.

“Go Ahead! Show It Off!” is the theme for the showcase. Submissions may include student writing, art work, videos, web pages, science projects, experiential learning, community projects, technology innovations, and other demonstrations of students’ intellectual and artistic achievements. Students may enter work they have already submitted elsewhere, but the project must have a new component.

Cash awards will go to outstanding exhibits in community partnership, originality and creativity, best use of technology, most effective corporate interaction, most effective technology tool, most interesting research project. The ever-popular student choice award will also be given.

Sponsors are the Division of Instructional and Technology Support Services (DoIT), the Provost’s Office, University Life, University Libraries, Student Services, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Century Club of George Mason University Inc.
