We’re excited to share some event details of the March For Science Silicon Valley. We have officially joined forces with Silicon Valley Comic Con to expand and make the event even better!
The goal of the March for Science is to celebrate science, advocate for nonpartisan support of evidence-based policy, and make science more accessible to everyone by increasing opportunities in STEM fields and education.
We will gather at San Jose City Hall and begin marching at 11:00 am.
The March will culminate with our rally at Comic Con's free, family-friendly festival at Plaza de Cesar Chavez at noon. The event will include science-focused educational activities, opportunities for advocacy, food trucks, and more!
On stage will be a variety of speakers from the Scientific community, including:
- Mayim Bialik, NeuroScientist, Actress (Big Bang Theory)
- Kimberly Bryant, Founder of Black Girls Code
- Tim Ritchie, President and CEO, The Tech Museum of Innovation
- William Moerner, PhD, Nobel Laureate for Chemistry
- Sarahi Espinoza Salamanca, Founder DREAMers Roadmap
- Jose Cabrera, PhD, Chemistry Professor at San Jose City College
- Phil Plait, PhD Bad Astronomer
More speakers will be announced as they are confirmed. Check the website for more info.
