Adventure in the Capitol

Last week I was lucky enough to participate in the MIT Science Policy Initiative Congressional Visits Day! 

One of the meetings I led was with the Congressman from my district (MA-9), Representative Keating. It was a great honor to meet him, as I'd seen him the week before at the welcome ceremony for the R/V Armstrong!
