As CCST S&T Policy Fellows, scientists and engineers spend one year in Sacramento serving in the California State Legislature or within a California Executive Branch office. Working as staff in the State Assembly, State Senate, or in a state agency they get a front-row seat learning about the craft and process of decision making in the State of California — a dynamic arena that often sets policy trends for the United States and the world.
