40+ March for Science Sign Ideas That Are Clever AF

Listen, a good planet is hard to find. Especially one with an ocean as spectacular as ours. On April 22, we celebrate planet Earth with its own special day — Earth Day — and we march! Need some motivation to start brainstorming your March for Science sign ideas?

According to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, scientists are 95 percent certain that 2016 was the third year in a row to set a new record for global average surface temperatures.

This means that our oceans are getting warmer, so it’s extremely important to learn as much as we can about them and the processes that create our global climate. More than ever, we need science!
