Codi Gugliuzza, Hyattsville, Maryland; Aimee Becker, Laurel, Maryland; Benjamin Israel, Ricer's Town, Maryland; Steven Israel, Ricer's Town, Maryland.
Aimee Becker: "I'm a teacher — I teach preschool, and in the past I've done environmental education, and so the Lorax speaks to me, both as a teacher of four-year-olds and as a teacher of science."
Codi Gugliuzza: "My grandfather had an operation on both of his knees, he had operations on his cataracts, none of them would have been possible without science. My dad's side of the family has lots of physical health issues, and my mom's side of the family has lots of mental health issues, and none of them would be helped without the power of science."
Steven Israel: "Without the basic functions of the NIH and the EPA we wouldn't be living our lives the way they are today, and that's why I'm here."
Sara Alhassani and Gabby Paz, Alexandra Virginia.
Sara Alhassani: "I came to see what everyone's concerns are, and it's really interesting to see all the different signs, the big turnout is surprising — but cool!"
Gabby Paz: "Recycling at home won't make a big difference, but I feel like movements like this, you really see how we can all come together and make a change. And with this new cabinet it's difficult to see that, but I do believe that it is possible."
