Buffalo High School students recently took a field trip last Saturday, April 22 to the Minnesota State Capitol. The group started at the Minnesota Science Museum, where a large crowd of students, educators, and the public gathered as part of the Kids Climate March. After listening to student speakers, the group marched to the Cathedral of St. Paul before leading the larger group, March for Science, on their way to the State Capitol. The group consisted of over 10,000 people (some reports as high as 50,000). It was very peaceful and to a large extent consisted of families and young people. At the capitol groups listened to speakers (students of all ages, teachers, scientists, and politicians). Although the reasons for marching varied, the general consensus was a dissatisfaction with policies not based in science, as well as a feeling that science had been under attack for political reasons. Pictured are BHS students (front row, left-right): Kyrsten Barrett, Alex Plys, Sean Rathburn, Emma Lee, James Didier, Jared Frolik; (back row): Maddy Swenson, Emma Shultz, Brittney Olson, and Alexis Nichols.
