March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support evidence-based policy, scientific endeavors, and the importance of science education. Please join us!
We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.
Redding March for Science supports investment in local science education. For the past two years, Redding March for Science has donated all our profits to local scientific education, including WES Camp and the Schreder Planetarium. This year funds raised will go to WES Camp to help them recover from the Carr Fire. We recognize that human curiosity is a universal trait and that dogged persistence in scientific investigation are the greatest hope for the future. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs nationally paid on average $87,570 in 2015. Between May 2009 and May 2015, California added 160,950 STEM jobs.
Right now, all across the northern state, there are kids filled with curiosity and scientific aptitudes. We want to support their ability to ready themselves for a STEM career.
