  • Organizers Plan Las Cruces March For Science

About 5,000 people were expected to attend the Washington D.C. March for Science on Saturday, with thousands of others attending similar marches in cities around the country, the Washington Post reported. An essay contest for the High School students and a poster contest for the middle school students are part of this year's march. The demands of the march remained the same as its predecessor, organised in the city on August 9 past year: allocation of at least 3% of the GDP to scientific and technological research (currently, 0.85%) and 10% towards education; develop scientific tempter; ensure the education system does not contradict scientific evidence; and enact policies based on scientific evidence.

In 2018, science advocates are at it again.

Mary Ellen Cosenza, 58, attended the march in New York's Washington Square Park on Saturday. The rally included opportunities to register to vote or apply for an absentee ballot, make signs, get a button, sign up for mailing lists and listen to a slew of speakers ranging from experts in physics, computer science and geology to a local comedian talk about the importance of science and facts.

Satellite marches also drew crowds in cities around the world such as Munich, Germany, and Durban, South Africa.

Scientists, academicians and professors were among the participants in the "March for Science" to promote scientific temper.
