AIP FYI #24: House Science Committee Hearing on FY 2008 S&T Request

Abstract:
Another committee member asked about the increased funding request for ITER, Marburger replying that it was the "essential next step." Marburger was asked about the health impacts of nanotechnology, with there being general agreement that public sentiment could turn against it. Gordon added that a nanotechnology hearing will be held later this year. After discussion of several other issues, the questioning returned to K-12 science and math education, particularly the roles of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Education, Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R-MI) telling Marburger that "this is a major issue."
