Remaining needs for April 14 Science Expeditions

A few more exhibitors, volunteers and a social media push are still needed to make the 2012 Science Expeditions on Saturday, April 14 a big success. Science Expeditions is the day UW-Madison invites the public in to experience hands-on science activities and to tour science-based venues throughout the campus. This year is the 10th annual Science Expeditions event!

Needs:

1. Exploration Stations
Exploration Stations are staffed, interactive exhibits where you can share science research, science concepts and or/the process of “thinking like a scientist” with the public. To sign up, go to http://go.wisc.edu/2q816o.

2. Volunteers are needed for the April 14 event
As a Volunteer Support Staff, you can help set up or take down tables, chairs, signs, and information booths; or you can help welcome people and help them navigate their way to the dozen Satellite Science Venues; or you can help gather feedback and input to help evaluate the visitor experience at Science Expeditions; or you can help assist at various exploration stations. Sign-up to help! http://tinyurl.com/sci-exp-staff

3. Social media
Give Science Expeditions 2012 a boost and strengthen your social media ties by joining in an effort to coordinate some online marketing before and during the April 14 event. If your science and/or science education group has a Facebook or Twitter (or Flickr or Pinterest or Google+ or whatever) account, please contact Chris Barncard at barncard@wisc.edu. We’d love to have your help tapping UW-Madison’s growing social media community to promote the 10th annual Science Expeditions — and to begin building a list of campus accounts with science and outreach missions.
