To change culture to value STEM, we must get our policy makers in our nation’s capitol on board with knowing about and supporting FIRST and STEM in education. If we are not there telling them about our experiences, no one else is! This is a conference consisting of training to prepare students and mentors for meetings with their Senators and Members of Congress in their offices on Capitol Hill. We will train you in the Do’s and Don’ts of these meetings and give you time to practice and organize talking points so you are ready for the meeting. We will also help you navigate around Capitol Hill and be available to help if you need it. If this is your first year in D.C. or first time meeting with your Senators or Members of Congress, we will focus on relationship building.
