March for Science, Las Cruces, is organizing the “March For Science” in support of science, research and science education, to be held in Las Cruces, New Mexico on April 22, 2017. Be at Plaza de Las Cruces. The public is invited to listen to various guest speakers, ask questions. We will assemble downtown mall (Plaze de Las Cruces) at about 10am, we plan to march around Church and Water street (sidewalks), then converge at tent downtown mall for some short speeches,  followed by ASK A SCIENTIST A QUESTION at booths in the tent. This event is to show community support for the sciences in our schools, in our community, and in the world. While the March For Science is not designed to be a "protest," it’s primary mission is to raise awareness on the importance of the sciences and scientific inquiry in our schools and our society and set the stage for some serious dialog in this country regarding the search for reason, truth, inquiry, and the scientific method.
