The March for Science 2018 is underway

In Washington, D.C. last year, science marchers had to battle cold, wet weather. This year’s event is expected to take place under friendlier skies.

The March for Science is celebrating its second anniversary today. And while the numbers may be smaller, supporters haven’t lost any of their energy.

The global grassroots movement has evolved from having a million people take to the streets last year in more than 450 cities to year-round advocacy for science and for evidence-based policies by government officials. But 14 April is still the big event for many local groups.

We’ll be covering some of those activities throughout the day.

So come back to ScienceInsider for reports from the field.

Don’t have your sign yet? Everyone is offering ideas

Last year, sign making parties were a popular pastime in the days before the March for Science. This year, a bevy of websites have put up stories aimed at giving marchers who might be at a loss for words (and pictures) and few ideas for their placards. A sampling:

At Thrillist, Joe McGauley offers Funny, powerful and clever poster ideas for the science march this weekend. I”[I]’s always a bit tough to figure out how best to get a message across in a sea of signs and chants,” he writes.

Don Duggan-Haas of the Paleontological Research Institution in Ithaca, New York, offers a few sign tips on the website of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers. “If science saved your life, or the life of a loved one, say it,” he writes. Then, you can “use the other side of your sign for your geoscience message.”

The website a plus has 13 awesome signs to inspire you before the march for science this weekend

And in case you missed it last year, STAT had The 31 best signs people took to the March for Science. And Bustle had 30 funny March for Science sign ideas.

On Twitter, some folks say they are having a hard time deciding on their message… 

Brainstorming for tomorrow’s #MarchForScience and I think I have hit a wall (and can’t find the rest of the markers.)

Don’t worry @FieldMuseum I will work on something a bit more, uhh, creative. pic.twitter.com/PQJ6v9dUeA
