At more than 200 sites across the world, participants attended science outreach events, teach-ins, or demonstrations, according to organizers, who aimed to create nonpartisan gatherings.

Organizers, participants, and supporters of the March for Science are holding a conference on science advocacy, education and outreach, and grassroots organizing July 6–8 in Chicago.
