March for Science!

If there is a March for Science in your city this weekend, GO GO GO. I am actually going to get out there this time.

I have always seen the need for science to look at its relationship to people, and there is destined to be a gap there. How do we get kids into science? How do we convinced politicians that funding science will bring economic, ecological, quality of life benefits that help the entire population?

I am trained to troubleshoot data bus problems, not people problems. I can't hook up on oscilloscope to sociology. I'm like every engineer. So the gap continues.

Get out there and be part of the conversation. Learn about organizations that are bridging the gap. Keep asking questions, just like you do when you're working on a technical project.

And if anybody tries to stop you, be a resistor. Or a capacitor. Or a transistor. Or a power source. You can do pretty much anything with those.
