March for Science Sacramento

Saturday, April 14, 2018

10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

California State Capitol: 1315 10th Street


ON APRIL 14TH - Californians will unite at the California Capitol Building, West Steps, to raise their voices for SCIENCE and the value of fact-based policy. Now more than ever, science and truth are under attack by certain factions of the government, who find that the facts do not align with their policy priorities. 

For more than a century the United States has been a leader in innovation and scientific research, and the current economy is driven by our technological, medical and scientific achievements. Cuts to research, education and STEM programs now threaten to undermine our competitive edge in the global economy. 

Join us on April 14th at the Capitol Building, West Steps for a rally with inspiring speakers, music, and more! At noon, our thousands of science supporters will march, circling the Capitol Mall to return to the Capitol West Steps. 

• ADA-Compliant Bathrooms 
• American Sign-Language Interpreters During the Rally and Musical Performances
• Food Trucks
• Kids’ Zone with Activities
• Local Organization Exhibitors
• More Ways to Take Action for Science!

Marchers begin to gather at the Capitol West Steps, at the intersection of Capitol Mall and 10th Street. There will be musical performances and speakers to inform and unite our marchers in action. 
→ 12 pm: THE MARCH
The march will begin, led by Element Brass Band, to proceed towards Capitol Bridge until we arrive at 4th Street. At 4th Street we will turn and take the other lane of Capitol Mall back towards the Capitol building for more music and our keynote speakers. ​
We begin the second part of the rally, which will include our two keynote speakers, a musical performance, and a group action which we will announce at the time. ​


This year, March for Science Sacramento will be sharing the stage and platform with Tax March Sacramento, which aims to repeal the recent tax cuts for the wealthy. To find out more, check out our joint event page:

March for Science Sacramento is a 501(c)3 nonprofit project of Social Good Inc.

NASA Mars Mission Tours California

April 13-15, 2018

Powerhouse Science Center, Exhibit


Scientists and engineers with NASA's next mission to Mars will be touring California cities starting this month.

NASA's InSight mission will be the first interplanetary launch from the West Coast. In preparation for its May launch, the Mars InSight Roadshow is stopping at cities along the earthquake-prone California coast to explain how the robotic lander will study Mars' deep interior using seismology and other geophysical measurements.

The Roadshow brings family-friendly science activities, exhibits and public talks to communities throughout California, making comparisons between earthquakes and the marsquakes that InSight will try to detect. The Roadshow will also partner with local and national organizations along the way, promoting planetary science and showing the benefits of NASA earthquake data gathered by Earth-observing satellites. All the museums are members of the NASA Museum Alliance.


What to Expect:

  • "Make Your Own Marsquake" demo, in which members of the public jump and see seismometer readings on a screen
  • Interviews with NASA scientists and engineers
  • Colorful backdrops and selfie stations
  • Models of the InSight spacecraft
  • Mars globe "cutaways" showing the interior of Mars
  • Virtual reality headsets used to see panoramas of Mars

Who to Expect:

  • Members of InSight's mission and science teams
  • JPL’s Mars public engagement team
  • NASA Solar System Ambassadors
