As of Tuesday, March 20, 2018
The second annual March for Science takes over Rheingarten Park April 28 in White Salmon.
The science fair will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday; speakers will be at 10:45 a.m. and the march kicks off at noon. There will also be a raffle for science-themed prizes at 11:45 a.m. (prizes include telescopes donated by Meade and Celestron).
The march will follow the same short route through White Salmon used last year. The event aims to encourage young people to enter STEM fields by showing how much the community encourages science and the critical thinking skills it requires, as well as demonstrating an appreciation for the role science has played in our modern society, according to a news release.
Organizers are looking for participants in the Science Fair — anyone with any science-related endeavor is encouraged to participate.
Shared tents, tables and chairs will be available, but participants are asked to sign up early. No one will be turned away, but organizers cannot guarantee space in the shared tents. For those with their own setup, the park is big enough for anyone, even last-minute participants.
