Extravaganza on the Hill
Representative Vernon Ehlers (R-MI) and APS Public Outreach Coordinator Jessica Clark stand in front of the APS World Year of Physics booth at a June 21 event on Capitol Hill promoting the National Science Foundation. Members of Congress and congressional staffers were able to see displays by universities, national labs and other organizations describing their NSF-funded projects. Ehlers is one of two physics PhD's in Congress, and is a Fellow of the APS. He introduced the resolution in the House of Representatives last year proclaiming 2005 the World Year of Physics.
