The Science Policy Initiative - Congressional Visits Day Report 2016
CVD took place over April 12th-13th, 2016. On April 12th, SPI students participated in a variety of workshops and seminars to help prepare them for meetings with congressional offices on April 13th. As an introduction, students met with William Bonvillian and his staff from the MIT Washington, DC Office. The meeting offered a crash course in the structure of congressional offices, background on science policy in the past and present, and a primer on the talking points that the students could utilize in their meetings.
