CAMEOS Fellows Go To Washington

CAMEOS Fellows J Bean and R FontanaFellows in the CAMEOS program are active in sharing knowledge from their scientific as well as their educational research. Each year, fellows communicate their results to other academic scientists, government officials, and the public. They have attended the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellows in K-12 Education Annual Meeting, the American Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting, and a Gordon Research Conference over the past few years.  Each year, fellows also visit U.S. Congress offices to brief elected officials about research advances relevant to current policy issues and to highlight how fellows' research serves society. Below you can find posters and briefing statements from past and current fellows.
