March Down Market Street
After the rally, we will March down Market Street towards Civic Center Plaza. This will take approximately 60-90 minutes.
The Science Fair will be an opportunity for all ages to engage, create, discover, and connect. We’ll have keynote speakers, panel discussions, food trucks, bands, an open mic stage, letter-writing zones, and a science-themed photo booth. Activities will be hosted by an inspiring array of partners from across our community, including the 49ers STEAM team, CalAcademy, Planetary Society, and SACNAS.
