March for Science Comes to the Kansas Statehouse Saturday

Advocates for science education will rally at the Kansas Statehouse Saturday. They’ll be promoting the importance of science and the role it plays in policy making.

Dr. Steven Case directs the Center for STEM Learning at the University of Kansas.  He says they’re concerned about science being politicized and efforts to discredit some types of science.
 
“Which is not a good thing. We need good information, good education and really solid understandings of the natural world to inform our policies as we move forward as a county,” says Case.
 
The rally at the Kansas Statehouse, set for noon on Saturday, is part of the international March for Science, taking place in the nation's capital and in other cities around the world.
