If you’ve ever been curious about how science gets translated into government policy in California, or how scientists can make an impact in the State Legislature, then this month’s meetup is the one for you.
Joining our networking social will be our friends from the CCST Science & Technology Policy Fellowship. Offered by the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), this fellowship experience places engineers and PhD scientists in the California State Legislature for one-year appointments. The Science Fellows use their technical expertise to serve as staffers and analysts in the California State Assembly and the California State Senate—playing an important role in navigating the science, health, technology, and environmental issues facing our state today.
Fellowship alumni will be on hand to answer questions about the program, which is currently seeking applicants. Appetizers provided!
As always, Capital Science Communicators events are open to any professional or student interested in the clear communication of science, wherever your expertise may lie. Come meet familiar faces and new colleagues, and let’s spice up science for the Sacramento region!
