The Harvard GSAS Science Policy Group and DMS Policy Path went to Washington, DC from Monday, April 23 to Thursday, April 26, 2018. We visited a number government agencies such as the State Department and NASA and thenHouse Science Committee. We also met with think tanks STPI, Bipartisan Policy Center and the National Academies of Science. We also were fortunate to meet with Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY 4th District). The goal of this trip was to help participants explore career paths in policy and government by introducing them to scientists and policymakers working on science policy and beyond.
Check out our trip report that includes detailed information about what we learned about each agency we visited.
