Several presenters from CALS joined others from  UW-Madison and UW-Extension at Burlington High School on Friday, April 26 as part of a statewide effort to bring the research and resources of the UW to communities across Wisconsin.

Students in middle and high school, along with their teachers, advisors, and parents, enjoyed a wide variety of “Exploration Stations” in the gym with displays and information in areas ranging from cheesemaking from Babcock Hall, plant diseases, the UW Library System, to the Space Science and Engineering Center. The exhibits also provided students and parents with opportunities to discuss different fields of study available at UW-Madison and learn about resources available in their community through local Extension offices.

“We are excited to bring the UW to Burlington and to give students and the general public an opportunity to see how innovation and collaboration at the university are having a positive impact on the lives of citizens throughout Wisconsin,” says Vince Sweeney, UW-Madison vice chancellor for university relations.
