March for Science-New Ulm

We will gather together at Hermann Heights Park in New Ulm on Earth Day-April 22, 2017 to support and advocate for scientific research and evidence-based policies. 

Our March event will be a Science Celebration. Germans have more fun so you won't want to miss it!

Who should come? Everyone is welcome! This is a family-friendly event. We are coming together for anyone who ever wondered how a butterfly flies, built a robot, sequenced a genome, healed a broken bone, tracked a turtle, crumbled soil in their hand, or asked why. 

What are we doing? The event will kick-off with several inspirational speakers who will talk about what science means to them. We will then participate in an act of service: picking up trash in the park and woods area as well as cutting down invasive buckthorn. 

What to wear? Your favorite science shirt, gloves, sturdy shoes, clothes you don't mind getting dirty for the trash/ buckthorn removal portion of the event.

What is Science? Science is the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. At its core it is non-partisan.

Our mission: We echo the Minnesota march mission: "we champion publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest."
