Preparation for Congressional Visits Days
February 3, 2010
Several materials science and engineering students will be attending the larger Science-Engineering-Technology Congressional Visits Days (SETCVD), April 28 – 29, 2010, in Washington, DC.
The objective of SETCVD is to underscore the long-term importance of science, engineering, and technology to the Nation through meetings with congressional decision makers. The CVD, organized by The Science-Engineering-Technology Working Group, is a two-day annual event that brings scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, students, and technology executives to Washington to raise visibility and support for science, engineering, and technology. Uniquely multi-sector and multi-disciplinary, the CVD is coordinated by coalitions of companies, professional societies and educational institutions. It is open to all people who believe that science and technology comprise the cornerstone of our Nation’s future.
FMS and Material Advantage want to make sure the students who are attending CVDs this year are prepared for when they arrive in DC. Visit the student chapter activities page for special resources for CVDs.
