This past Saturday, scientists and science-enthusiasts took to the streets of over 600 cities around the globe to proclaim their love for SCIENCE. Yes, in all-caps!
Here at the Lab, we do love us some science… capital letters or no. And we’ve got opinions on the March as varied as each of our individual backgrounds. The March for Science was necessary, problematic, too political, not political enough, all-encompassing, exclusionary, an important message, a pointless distraction, something else entirely. And so, we turn to you, dear readers, for your opinions on the weekend’s festivities!
What do you think? Did you join the March for Science or avoid it? What were the reasons for your decision? What worked, or what would have to change to garner your support? Is a March for Science necessary today, or are there other forms of more effective outreach we should focus on? Should events like the March for Science keep happening, or should it remain a one-time thing? What are you doing to promote the scientific method, critical thinking, and facts? What does science mean to you?
The Art Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab reader. It appears on random, occasional days at (about) 3pm ET… Because NOBODY EXPECTS THE ARTIST INQUISITION!
