Catalyzing Advocacy for Science and Engineering, or CASE, is an entry-level program organized to educate graduate students in STEM who are interested in learning about the role of science in policy-making and the federal policy-making process and to empower them with ways to become a voice for basic research. The workshop is catered to graduate students studying science, technology, engineering, or math at a US university, who have limited experience or knowledge of science policy and advocacy.
This three-and-a-half day program will take place in Washington, DC, March 29-April 1, 2020. At the workshop, participants will gain knowledge on the structure and organization of Congress and the federal budget and appropriations process, learn tools for effective science communication and civic engagement, and participate in interactive seminars about policymaking and communication. On Wednesday, April 1, students will have the option to conduct meetings with their elected Members of Congress or congressional staff on Capitol Hill.
