Share your science at the 18th Annual Science Expeditions outreach event

The following is a message from Tom Zinnen:

To UW-Madison Researchers & Outreachers,

In two months, UW Science Expeditions will be joining with Engineering Expo to welcome several thousand people to come explore campus and to connect with the people, places and programs that help fuel scientific ingenuity and innovation here at UW-Madison.

On behalf of the UW Science Alliance, I’m delighted to invite you and your colleagues to take part in the 18th Annual UW Science Expeditions campus open house April 3-5.

How can you share your science with the public at UW Science Expeditions?

  1. You can provide and staff a hands-on Exploration Station at the Discovery Building on April 4 or at the Health Sciences Learning Center on April 5.
  2. You can open your lab or your building as a Destination for Exploration on April 3, 4 or 5.
  3. Or you can offer a Science Spectacular—a stage demonstration featuring your scientific field, or a talk on your research. This can be offered at your place or I can help find you a venue, including the Auditorium at the Biotech Center on Friday evening April 3, or during the day on Saturday April 4.

To sign up for UW Science Expeditions, please go to To help us best promote your event, please sign up by February 15.

I’d be happy to respond to any questions or suggestions.

Thanks again for advancing the Wisconsin Idea through your participation in UW Science Expeditions!

Tom Zinnen
