Chicago Council on Science and Technology is pleased to partner with the March for Science Chicago.
Chicago Council on Science and Technology is taking a stand for science.
Chicago Council on Science and Technology’s mission is to enhance the public’s understanding of and appreciation for science and technology, and their impact on society. We believe publicly-funded science is a pillar of our democracy.
We stand with the March for Science, and with the principles behind it. The March for Science will take place in Washington, DC, Chicago, IL and many other locations around the globe on April 22 (Earth Day). As the March for Science website explains, the goal of the march is, “To show support for the scientific community. To safeguard the scientific process, and research funding, when seeking answers to the things that matter.”
In keeping with this mission, we stand with the March for Science, and with the principles expressed on the March for Science Chicago website:
–To show support for the scientific community.
–To safeguard the scientific process, and research funding, when seeking answers to the things that matter.
–To publicly celebrate science, which helps us make sense of ourselves and our world.
–To encourage curiosity and exploration, the heart of the scientific approach.
