CSTPR Seminar: Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering Workshop Panel Discussion
Please join us for a panel discussion featuring four previous winners of the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop student competition. They will describe their experiences at the workshop and answer your questions about the program.
About the Program:
For the fifth year, CSTPR organized a competition to select two CU Boulder students to attend the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in April. Students attending the three-and-a-half day program in Washington, D.C., learn about the structure and organization of Congress, the federal budget and appropriations processes, and tools for effective science communication and civic engagement. In addition, students participate in interactive seminars about policy-making and communication. The day after the workshop, students will form teams and conduct meetings with their elected members of Congress and congressional staff members, putting into practice what they have learned. The competition is supported by the University of Colorado Graduate School and Center for STEM Learning.
Past competition winners: Julia Bakker-Arkema, Kaitlin McCreery, Adalyn Fyhrie and Nicholas Valcourt
Moderator: Heather Bené, University of Colorado Office of Government Relations
