Letter to the editor: Readers advocate for science march
We are writing to say, “We want you for the Central Wisconsin March for Science.”
On Saturday, April 22, America takes to the streets to celebrate the many contributions of science and to ensure another two centuries of inquiry and advancement. Here in central Wisconsin, we have so much to be proud of: a world-class medical clinic and research institute, the nation’s premier specialty genetic testing laboratory, cutting-edge agricultural innovation, the state’s best Advanced Placement science scholars, a top-notch Future Farmers of America group, and a championship Ocean Bowl team for starters.
The Central Wisconsin March for Science begins at 10 a.m. at Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library. A rally featuring short science talks, informational tables, electric car display, and food will follow at 11:30 a.m. at the Oak Avenue Community Center. Signs and costumes are encouraged, and children are welcome.
We are a diverse group of scientists, science fans, students, and active citizens promoting a positive, high-energy event.
