A group of Penn State students attend this year’s AIAA Congressional Visits Day (CVD) in Washington D.C. on March 4th.
Every year, AIAA members – engineers, scientists, researchers, students, educators, and technology executives – come to Washington, D.C. to take part in AIAA’s Congressional Visits Day program (CVD). They meet with national decision makers to discuss critical industry issues in civil aeronautics, civil astronautics, and defense. Penn State students were able to meet with Pennsylvania representatives.
What’s the goal? Through face-to-face meetings with Members of Congress, congressional staff, key administration officials, and other decision makers, Congressional Visits Day raises awareness of the long-term value that science, engineering, and technology bring to America.
