CATALYZING ADVOCACY IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING (CASE) WORKSHOP

AGU-sponsored CASE workshop

Each year, AGU sponsors one student member to attend the AAAS Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in Washington, D.C.

The workshop, held each spring, teaches students about Congress, the federal budget, and science communication during a three-day course. It also allows students to see the process up close, network with science policy professionals, and collaborate with other students who are interested in similar issues.

The CASE Workshop for 2020 has been cancelled. We look forward to supporting this event in 2021!
