Students from Tesla STEM High School in Redmond joined hundreds of advocates in support of evidence based science at Seattle’s March for Science, on April 14, as part of the 2018 Global Marches for Science.

The event focused on holding political leaders accountable for passing science policies that support evidence based research in the service of all people and all communities.

The event featured prominent politicians, scientists, and activists, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, U.S. Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Jamie Margolin, Dr. Marco Hatch, Geneva Betnel, Megan O’Reilly, and many more.

“I am so proud to represent a community that is at the forefront of science innovation, climate protection, and making sure we have climate justice as we move forward,” Rep. Jayapal said in a press release. “We truly are on the cutting-edge. I’m here because I firmly believe that science is the vehicle towards wisdom. It helps us move forward on our collective welfare.”

Hundreds of participants marched along E Pine Street toward Seattle Center shouting chants such as “Science- Not- Silence” and “What do we want?- Science!- When do we want it?- After peer review!”

Tesla STEM high school students, identifiable in their white lab coats, participated in the event as part of the school’s student led organization, Schools Under 2°C, dedicated to reducing carbon emissions in schools.

“It was inspiring to be with and hear from the other climate activists and be involved as part of a larger movement,” Tesla STEM student Annie Denton said in a press release. “Meeting other passionate members of the community reinforces the power we have to act as individuals and our common goals.”
