Quotes

"We will look at the critical elements and defining lines of your subject - not only what to put in your drawing, but the distillation process of what to leave out" Payne explained
"We're not trying to do anything contentious or take a shot at any of our elected representatives that have concerns," he said. "What I hope is that when it comes from students, some of the people who were originally in opposition to this will take a step back and listen to what the students have to say."
"Given that the nature of matter and in particular the property of mass is one of the fundamental questions in science, ... it is important to search for ... light neutral particles that might be partners of the active neutrinos, and may contribute to the dark matter of the universe."
"It's so exciting that ASN recognizes and puts their resources towards embracing arts education for all students," Siegel said. "We need to ensure K-12 access to arts education, including in-school and after-school programming. We must make sure all students have the opportunity to really engage in a meaningful and thoughtful way. Siegel has specialized in arts and disability issues for over 30 years starting at Arena Stage in Washington D C and now as Director of VSA and Accessibility at the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where she oversees national and international disability, arts and education programs."
