AWIS New Jersey Marching for Science

“Science, Not Silence”

AWIS New Jersey  partnered with the New Jersey March for Science to support the national mission:

“The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”

The march organized in Trenton war memorial by Prof. Matthew Buckley (Founder) and Elizabeth Meyer (Lead organizer)   drew more than 3,000  peaceful and non-partisan scientists, supporters of science and advocates for evidence-based policies.

With an objective to get high school students involved in local ecological conservation projects, we invite you to partner with us to learn basics of water quality testing. Each school / team will have an opportunity to identify a river of choice in their neighborhood. Based on the material and instructions provided from our experts, school teams will be assigned simple tasks to test defined parameters of the designated water body.  Each school team will share their results in a presentation at the end of the school year. The long-term goal is to make this a recurring annual event to track ecological parameters of different water bodies across NJ over extended time period with students providing valuable data each calendar period.
