Mark your calendars: Science March Apr 22nd

MARK YOUR CALENDARS. On April 22, we will walk out of our labs and into the streets.

We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, 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.

Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels – from local schools to federal agencies – throughout the world.

CauseScience visits Washington DC and the NIH!! #science


For Halloween weekend, CauseScience was in Washington DC. This included a fun visit to the NIH (shoutout to all my brother’s lab mates). While in the DC metro, I also came upon an ad for the Life Technologies Beautiful Life Images Contest. Although images had to be submitted by last Friday, keep your eyes out for the winning science images in ad panels around the DC metro. Super cool ads that feature science!!!
