Thousands gathered at University of Hawaii at Manoa Saturday as part of  Earth Day's, March For Science. 

  The March For Science is an international event.  Hawaii made up one of 600 other marches across the country.

“We’ve been following the march for over 24 hours now. It started in New Zealand. Australia had over 10,000 people show up, and New York counted over 10,000 people.” Said Elisha Wood-Charlson, media relations for the March For Science.

 Organizers say this march is for everyone who has an interest in or concern about the future of science in Hawaii.

  Saturday's activities kicked off with a rally, where speakers voiced what science means to them.  Students, teachers, keiki, and community members all gathered here for exhibits, music, and food before marching from Bachman Lawn to Stadium Park and back again.

The march was all about celebrating the role science plays in everyday lives.
