Episcopal Summer Institute: Washington Innovation Summit

Alexandria, VA

Overview

An experiential approach and focus allows students in the Washington Innovation Summit to explore Washington, D.C. and its resources through conservation science, political leadership, and cultural impact. Includes daily site visits throughout the D.C. region with professionals in government, tech, conservation, sports, and the arts.

An experiential approach and focus allows students in the Washington Innovation Summit to explore Washington, D.C. and its unique resources through multiple lenses, including conservation science, political leadership, and cultural impact. Throughout the week, students might spend a morning testing different techniques of collecting air pollution data, an afternoon exploring the lesser-known monuments of D.C. and their impact on the city's culture and history, and an evening at a roundtable Q&A with a senator exploring the principles of political leadership. Led by Episcopal High School staff, students will explore different career paths in the context of the nation's capital and its resources.

According to Oscar Wilde, experience is the best teacher. The Washington Innovation Summit adopts this philosophy wholeheartedly, making the city a textbook, teacher, and classroom all in one. Surrounded by energetic and Washington-savvy Episcopal faculty members, students get a taste of boarding school life and learn from local entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, government officials, and artists. We also visit the city's must-see sights, including the Washington Monument, the Martin Luther King, Jr. and Lincoln memorials, as well as some of the hidden treasures of D.C.'s cultural history.
