NMG Members Advocate for STEM Funding

As part of an annual outreach effort organized by the national Materials Advantage organization, NMG members once again traveled to Washington DC to advocate for STEM funding, including basic research at universities and national laboratories, as well as various education and outreach activities that get students interested in STEM fields at a young age.

Boris Dyatkin, Kelsey Hatzell, Sean Orzolek and Alex McBride, along with Pelin Kansu Lemons from Prof. Hao Cheng‘s research group, met with legislative staffers from six offices of US Senators and Representatives, including Senators Patrick Toomey and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania.
