16 Punny March For Science Sign Ideas

by Eliza Castile

Earth Day is always worth celebrating, but this year is particularly special. On April 22, thousands of protesters — scientists and laymen alike — will take part in the March for Science to celebrate the role the field plays in our lives. It's a serious subject, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out that it's also the perfect opportunity to break out your best punny March for Science sign ideas. Don't you want to impress your fellow protesters?

The relationship between science and politics is certainly a fraught one. Although the march is ostensibly nonpartisan, the website explains the need for a large-scale demonstration in favor of scientific rigor in today's political climate. "In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask... can we afford not to speak out in its defense?" reads the March for Science mission page.

Some scientists may choose to sit this one out, and that's their prerogative. If you're planning to attend, however, the main event will take place in Washington, D.C., and numerous satellite marches are planned. Obviously, no protest is complete without a sign, so here are 16 punny ideas to get you started.
