Science educators were out in force at the March for Science in Chicago. Standing together with fellow educators, we gathered to rally on Columbus Ave. After rousing speeches from local leaders in science research and education, marchers turned to march on to museum campus as news helicopters hovered above, capturing the massive crowd-estimated to be around 60,000. What an exciting, inspiring experience to be surrounded by the passionate front-line in defending scientific literacy amidst the day to day din of facebook feed news. After marching down Columbus, marchers poured onto museum campus, and ventured to the March for Science Chicago Expo, where the inspiration continued! So proud to be a part of this community!
