Attendees are highly encouraged to participate in the Capitol Hill visits as this time will be beneficial to both you and to the Congressional delegates with whom you are speaking. Prior to making Capitol Hill visits, attendees will be given an overview, "Talking Points" and "Leave Behinds", as well as pointers on meeting with Congress to aid you in speaking on the current STEM education issues. Triangle Coalition is happy to help set up appointments for you to meet with your Congressional delegation; just indicate on the registration form that you would like to do so and give your home zip code.
