Director of Wick Poetry Center David Hassler worked directly with environmentalist spokesperson Jane Hirshfield to take the traveling stanzas and create Science Stanzas.  

Traveling Stanzas are poetic stanzas that can be found around the city of Kent and the pair took the traveling stanzas and created Science Stanzas. These particular stanzas are short poetic versus about science and how important science and scientists are to our every day life.

The Wick poetry Center will have a tent sent up at the National Mall in Washington D.C. Saturday.
