Knit Your Own ‘Brain’ Hat For Earth Day Science March

Feb 03, 2017 at 3:38 PM ET

Inspired by the thousands of “pussy hats” donned during the Women’s March in Washington D.C., the upcoming March for Science will have their own handmade headwear. People are sharing patterns and tutorials on how to knit your own “brain hat.” There is a Facebook group, Twitter handle, and official website for planning the march. Donald Trump’s presidency has many in the scientific community worried about issues like government funding for research, climate change denial and transparency, just to name a few. While the March for Science doesn’t have an official date yet, satellite marches in other cities are already being planned.
