The 2nd Annual March for Science-White Salmon will be held April 28th at Rheingarten Park. The science fair will start at 9:30, speakers at 10:45 and march at noon. There will also be a raffle for science themed prizes at 11:45 (prizes include telescopes donated by Meade and Celestron).
We will be taking the same short route through White Salmon as we did last year. Our primary goals are to encourage our young to enter STEM fields by showing how much our community encourages science and the critical thinking skills it requires and demonstrating our appreciation for the role science has played in our modern society.
We are currently looking for participants in the Science Fair, anyone with any science related endeavor or something they feel would be appropriate to the stated goals is encouraged to participate. We are hoping to put a local spin on bigger scientific ideas to relate to our local Gorge Community. We will have a few larger shared tents, tables and chairs so please let us know by 3/15/18 if you need space in that shared area, if you have your own setup even better. No one will be turned away, but we can not guarantee space in the shared tents if late notice, however if one has their own setup the park is big enough for anyone, even last-minute participants.
To let us know if you are going to participate or any questions email us at March4ScienceWS@gmail.com or find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ScienceMarchWS/. Hope to see many on April 28th, the community helped make it a great success last year and we are hoping for the same or better this year!
