Raleigh Kids March for Science

  • 16 West Jones Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Keeping with the zeitgeist of 2018, KIDS WILL LEAD THE WAY to kick off the March for Science!! What better what to represent the importance of science than by marching with the next generation to inherit the Earth. Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations. We speak up now because all of these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened, so is the society that scientists uphold and protect! 

9:00 Kids Science Corner opens up with hands-on science fair activities for all ages! Stop by the AFAR booth to make a sun necklace and learn about solar power. 

9:30 gather at the North end of Halifax Mall (by the Archdale building) Kids gather at the front of the parade! All ages are welcome to join.

9:45 RALEIGH KIDS MARCH FOR SCIENCE! We march with Oakwood Second Line and Paperhand Puppet Intervention! We encourage instruments, costumes, creative signs, and all sorts of merriment. We will take 1 lap around Halifax Mall to kick off the event. The event will also be live streamed.
