Please join us on April 22nd for the Madison March for Science!!!

Our ACS section will participate in our local nonpartisan March for Science held in Madison to support efforts in ‘fostering understanding and appreciation of science by the public, the media and policymakers.’  This local march is one of over 400 other March for Science events worldwide that are championing science as a pillar for the advancement of human knowledge, progress and prosperity. 

The local section will prepare and hand out signs for the march by the playground in James Madison Park (614 E Gorham St, Madison, WI 53703) from 12:30 pm until the march begins around 1:00 pm. Please let us know if you plan to participate so we can make sure to have enough signs!  If you would like to march as a group, please stick around the area where we are handing out signs.  We will aim to join the March soon after it gets started around 1:00 from the west side of James Madison Park.  The march will end at UW Science Hall/Library Mall.  Science booths will be set up along Library Mall and State Street Mall beginning around 2 pm, and speakers will begin around 2:30 pm.
