Medical tools and computer technologies are extending the range of art preservation for future generations through collaborations across museums, galleries and STEM institutions.
Inspired by the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships program, the new Eagleton Science and Politics Fellowship Program was launched to bring science to New Jersey state legislative and executive offices.
This fall, STPF anticipates welcoming three additional fellows jointly sponsored by a collective of new partner societies. These fellows will have experience in areas including causal inference and machine learning to help meet a rising demand for data science expertise in the government.
Fellows who work inside congressional offices take responsibility for learning new topics and assessing and communicating scientific knowledge while adjusting to a wholly unique workplace. This year, there are 32 legislative branch fellows sponsored by nearly as many partner scientific societies. Fellows also arrive on Capitol Hill (“the Hill”) at many different points in their careers, which affects both what they bring and what they take away from the experience.
