Minnesota is part of an event in support of evidence-based research in education and industry, pro-science programs, the health of citizens and the environment and quality science education. The march takes place on Earth Day, April 22, 2017 in Washington DC and around the country including 12 different sites in Minnesota. March for Science is a non-partisan, volunteer-based organization that is concerned by efforts to cut support to science, engineering, and higher education, issue gag orders against scientists, and continue to deny basic science as policy positions. The march has gained the endorsement of NSTA, MnSTA, SciMathMN and many science and STEM focused organizations.
