This event is a family-friendly rally and march in support of science, and to celebrate science’s role in the Princeton community. It is being held in coordination with the March for Science taking place in Washington, D.C., on the same day.
It kicks off on Hinds Plaza with music, speakers, a sign contest, face painting, and science-focused activities and demonstrations. Following the rally, participants will march together toward Albert Einstein’s former residence on Mercer Street.
Participants are encouraged to bring signs and banners that highlight (in clever and punning ways) the importance of science in protecting health, safety, and the environment, and that call for preserving research funding and enacting evidence-based policies in the public interest. Children are invited to submit their signs in a contest for prizes. Local scientists are welcome to volunteer to lead activities or to submit photos or art depicting their scientific work.
