The CALS community is invited to participate in Science Expeditions 2010 on Saturday, April 10. Science Expeditions is an annual event that welcomes the community to campus and promotes appreciation of science among the public. It also helps students at all levels develop important communication skills. It’s a great opportunity to convey the wonders of science and advance the Wisconsin Idea.
Science Expeditions includes approximately 40 Exploration Stations. These are exhibits (mostly table-top) that provide hands-on activities for kids and families to engage them in the fascinating research happening every day at the University of Wisconsin. They are hosted by many members of the campus scientific community, including students, faculty, and staff. Participants can request up to $200 to organize and present an exploration station.
Science Expeditions is hosted by the Science Alliance, a group of science outreach folks from around campus. This year’s event will be held 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., April 10, 2010 in the Microbial Science Building, the Stock Pavilion, the Biochemistry Addition, and other venues.
Science Expeditions also includes several Science Spectaculars: Fusion Science Theater, Wonders of Physics, Science in a Box, and more. These events are scheduled throughout the day. They are crowd-pleasing demonstrations of science.
