This year’s Buffalo March for Science theme, “How can Science help you? How can you help science?”, is inspired by Science Demands Action’s mission to guide communities using science for social good. A key value of our organization is to provide a bridge between the scientific community and the public through improved communication. Therefore, poster session participants will be competing to demonstrate their ability to communicate scientific topics in a way that everyone can understand. Posters should emphasize the value of your work to society and help the Buffalo community understand why they should support your work.
Participants will be judged during the fair and winners will be honored in a social gathering in the weeks following the March.
