Albany’s West Capital Park hosted the second annual March For Science today. While the weather and wildly various forecasts may have put a dent in attendance numbers this year, at least we didn’t have any sleet or freezing rain. For those who did attend, there were many booths with fun science displays, creative and entertaining signs, and stirring speeches by some local scientists and officials. Here are some photos from the day.

Albany’s March for Science was a great time today. This area is a hotbed of scientific activity, with numerous colleges (including the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and RPI), a variety of elite hospitals (like Albany Medical Center and St Peter’s), and science centers like GE Global Research and Global Foundries in Malta. So it was no surprise that many scientists and science fans showed up at West Capitol Park to demonstrate their support. While the crowd may have been angry about what some politicians have been doing to marginalize science, today’s march featured a fun group with many clever and amusing signs. Here’s a taste of what the day was like, including some of my favorite signs. Plus – speaking as an English major – everyone’s spelling and grammar was impeccable! 🙂
