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.
We work toward a future where science is fully embraced in public life and policy. The March for Science Phoenix organization empowers a community of science supporters for nonpartisan advocacy in service of equitable and effective science and science policy.
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 a scientist who would be interested in sharing your expertise with students please contact firstname.lastname@example.org"
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.

We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology."
