Thousands to rally in celebration of science for March for Science Silicon Valley

Thousands of scientists, science fans and community members are expected at the March for Science Silicon Valley in downtown San Jose on Saturday, April 22. The march and family-friendly rally is one of more than 500 marches happening around the world on Earth Day. The goal of the volunteer-run effort is to celebrate science, advocate for nonpartisan support of evidence-based policy, and make science more accessible to everyone by increasing opportunities in STEM fields and education.

The march will start at 11 a.m. at San Jose City Hall and convene in a rally at Silicon Valley Comic Con's free outdoor festival at Plaza de Cesar Chavez starting at noon. The family-friendly festival and rally will include science-focused educational activities and opportunities for advocacy. Experts in climate change, coding, astrophysics, STEAM education, local politicians, celebrities and more will speak. Participants in Silicon Valley Comic Con may also make surprise appearances.

"I'm thrilled and honored to join with the science lovers of Silicon Valley to show my support for everything we stand for together: as scientists, as citizens, and as lovers of all that is possible when we work together," said neuroscientist and actress Mayim Bialik, who will speak at the rally.

Don't know a great deal about the medicinal usage of it but it's an interesting topic. I know a lot of research has been put into the medicinal use especially when it comes to pain relief. With my mother's illness I do wonder if something like this would have been helpful during her treatments or even her final days. Not sure if it was even available over here in the UK, I know it's a controversial topic over here.

Will watch this video later.

Looks Like Mayim is at an event on the 27th April:

The California Academy of Sciences will get the celebrity treatment this month, when "Big Bang Theory" star and actual neuroscientist Mayim Bialik appears on stage with former "Mythbusters" host Kari Byron to talk about being a scientist on a hit TV show.

The Big Bang Gala and Big Bang: Party After Dark is part fundraiser and part NightLife shindig, with the event welcoming a high profile music act in Hot Chip (who will perform a DJ set), and bartenders serving cocktails.

Food trucks including Señor Sisig and Grilled Cheese Bandits will provide munchies.

The Big Bang Gala and Big Bang: Party After Dark fundraiser takes place at the California Academy of Sciences on April 27, 2017. 



I'm also a big Hot Chip fan lol, they are doing a DJ set there.

I loved that whole photo shoot -happy to see more of it! <3

Just to clarify :) : Chaim Nachman Bialik (R.I.P) is "the national poet" of Israel. It is a given that school kids learn his poems. Some massive artistic talent runs in this family...

Her shirt looks just like the israeli army uniform! So weird! LOL Some asked her if it is an IDF uniform shirt on the comments. (We have 2-3 years mandatory service so everybody can recognize the uniforms with a quick glance)
