Each year, APS participates in a Congressional Visit Day, sponsored by the Science-Engineering-Technology Working Group. Scientists travel to Washington from all over the country for a full day of visits with their Senators and Representatives, to make the case for science on the Hill. In the photo, R. Zach Lamberty (right), who is currently a graduate student at Cornell, chats with his home-state Senator, Republican John Thune of South Dakota, during this year's CVD on April 25.
