The March for Science Mission:
"The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest."

March for Science - Take one!

It helps us expand our horizon of what we know. The broader the spectrum the better 'cuz the more we know the better we can diagnose diseases or fix problems.

Science is probably the best way we have to get at how the world works and ultimately the story of basically everything. It's to answer questions that no one's thought of! Or that people haven't been able to solve It's exciting!

Science is discovery, science is exploration. Science is fun, science is learning. It's everything!

It's everything we build, everything we are, everywhere we live, has science involved in it. Science is a twelve-year-old kid looking through a microscope for the first time and getting the shock of her life. I wanna talk about how science enriches my life! *weird noise* Science is a community of people seeking to learn about the world and the community part is really important.

It's all about using your understanding of the things around you to not only solve problems or establish facts but to help one another and to help build up a society Putting pieces together from the future and present to make the future work. Particularly, I think the defining feature of science is how it's objective which is, I guess, it's as objective as humans can be. The willingness to accept new evidence and discover new things is just divine.

Sorry. I'm thinking! It's also about participating in public conversations.

It's about using critical thinking and analysis to understand how things are and what we can do to make them better. We've got a curiousity drive and that shouldn't be suppressed. I really appreciate the detail on the interior of these walls!

I think it's really important that we all believe in fact based inquiry because that's going to help us as a society move ahead and keep us on the cutting edge of what needs to be done in this world. this world. Supporting science is Supporting science is supporting us, I guess. We're all in this together.

We've got one earth so we all have to take care of it. This March for Science is an opportunity for people to see that scientists look like all of us! I know scientists are often portrayed as being very sort of like stuffy, uptight people but I think every scientist that you talk to really has a genuine sense of wonderment.

It's so important for us to be able to continue to discover and understand the way that our natural world operates. Scientific research needs to continue and we need to stay informed as citizens. It's really important for people to celebrate all the good that science does for the world and to stand up for it.

This is a big complicated rock in space covered with 7 billion monkeys that gotta figure it out together. Hmmmm I'm participating in the March for Science because I particpated in the Women's March, I supported the March for Immigrants, I am a gay person, I just think that all of these issues are connected and science is at the heart of all of them. Science is what tells us that we're all the same species.

I'm participating in the March for Science to show unity with other like-minded people, to share our feelings with the world about how important science is. I'm participating in the March for Science to show my support for scientists both past and present and to inspire people in the future to remain curious about the world around us. Science is critically important to our society, to our lives, and to the lives of everything else we share the planet with and that's worth supporting and marching for.

I'm participating in the March for Science because I benefit from science in every aspect of my life and I see the benefit that science brings to other people and the way that it's improved the state of our world. And you should come to the March for Science too, to show your support for the little guys. So, I wanna know from you guys are you going to be participating in the March for Science and if you are, let me know!

Write it in the comments below. And I hope to see you here in Chicago or in spirit all around the world! So satisfying.

That's fun! That was it? I am sweating!
