  • An overview of policy basics including how decisions are made to govern the future course of Earth and atmospheric sciences
  • Opportunities to meet and dialog with Federal officials, Congressional staffers, and other high-level leaders
  • A survey of current science policy issues
  • Exercises using the case study method to explore a number of issues, both past and present, in depth and detail
  • Practical skills, experiences and contacts to use throughout your career to understand and influence the policy process
  • Opportunities to gauge their aptitude for and interest in the challenges of matching science to national priorities, and scientific program leadership
