Musings from Dr. Dina on the March for Science 2017, Chicago, IL
The March for Science was an amazing show of support for science and scientific literacy. I had the opportunity to spend time at the Expo with many kiddos, parents, retirees and science supports that wanted to know more about how they can get involved in promoting and supporting science education in their areas.
Many just didn't know where to start, and it got me to thinking that this is the time to network with scientists, university professors, engineers, informal ed partners and local science groups in the common interest of protecting access and promoting equity in science education for ALL of our kiddos. Such a wonderful day, and I'm looking forward to carrying that momentum forward!
