Professor Paul Barber Participates in the UC Coalition for National Science Funding Day

Professor Paul Barber just returned from Washington D.C. where I participated in the UC Coalition for National Science Funding day. We met with the science and education staff of Senators Boxer and Feinstein, and congressional representatives Waxman, Schiff and Roybal-Allard. The goal of this trip was to educate members of congress about the importance of NSF and congressional funding of science, both to drive technological innovation as well as to education the future leaders in STEM fields.
