Bostonians, along with thousands of other supporters spanning several cities around the world, gathered to celebrate Earth Day with one goal in mind -- to celebrate scientific knowledge. The March For Science movement was created as a way for people to express their concerns that the Trump administration is ignoring, or in some cases, attacking, scientific knowledge.
In a state known for its academic excellence many supporters of science, and members of the scientific community, hope to encourage people young and old to support communication, funding, policy, literacy, and improvement within science.
People were asked "How important is science to you?" Many explained how it helped them help others, learn about new things and helped them improve their overall lives.
