March for Science

It was a cold and rainy day, but that didn’t stop hundreds of people from coming out to Boston Common to show their support for science.

As part of the Northeastern club STEMout, I helped run a table at the Kids’ March for Science. Boston’s youngest scientists learned about water filtration techniques, then engineered their own water filters and tested them with gross water from the Frog Pond!

As a city, as a nation, and as a global community, it is crucial to understand the importance of science– it truly is our future. In this time of controversy, it was refreshing and reassuring to interact with the next generation of bright, eager scientists that will shape our world in years to come.
