The Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) held its 18th Annual Exhibition last week, which was a huge success.
An annual exhibition and reception is held by the CNSF each spring to showcase research made possible by the National Science Foundation. University researchers and educators describe their work to interested Members of Congress and their staff at exhibit booths displaying a wide variety of scientific research and education projects.
270 people were in attendance this year, including five Members of Congress (Representatives Lois Capps, Hansen Clarke, Colleen Hanabusa, Rush Holt and Lamar Smith).
Dr. Hans Kaper, Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (pictured above) was SIAM’s representative at this year’s event. He is a member of the SIAM Committee on Science Policy.
