TAKE A STAND FOR SCIENCE

SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE

The best way to protect the integrity of evidence and enact sound policy in our state is by encouraging the public to value and invest in science.

 

The Phoenix March for Science is NOT JUST FOR SCIENTISTS - it is critical for anyone who supports science, science education, and science policy to join in this effort and stand with us as we advocate for our future.

CORE ISSUES

PROGRAMS

MEET

A

SCIENTIST

Our Meet the Scientist program aims to improve science outreach and communication by bringing real life scientists into the classroom to share their innovative and pioneering research with K-12 students. From academia to industry, graduate students to professionals, our diverse group of scientists will expose children to the real-world activities of researchers in our local community in order to captivate curious minds and inspire the next generation of scientists. Are you a scientist in a STEM field and would like to get involved in the program? Or, are you a parent or educator interested in getting a class involved?

 

If you are interested in having a scientist visit your school or you are a scientist who would be interested in sharing your expertise with students please contact meetascientist@phxmarchforscience.com

THE

SPIRIT OF

SCIENCE

This exciting and interactive program brings scientists to life as actors demonstrate to elementary and middle school children the important contributions each has made to the field of science. With a focus on underrepresented minorities, such notable figures as Marie Curie, Alan Turing, and Hypatia of Alexandria share their experiences with children in small group settings. Students will interact with approximately ten scientists with the goal of advancing science education and literacy through engaging with researchers who have helped form our understanding of the world.

NERD
NITE

Our collaboration with Nerd Nite is the adult version of Meet A Scientist. What is more enjoyable than learning science? Learning science when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues! Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in a variety of locations throughout the valley. Scientists give 20-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines. Demonstrations have included bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans. Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or zombie insects. Our goal is to advance science education and scientific literacy while having a great time. For more information and previous presenters check out the Nerd Nite website: https://phoenix.nerdnite.com/
