Do you or your research group have a hands-on activity that shares science as exploring the unkown? If you do please consider being part of the 11th Anniversary of Science Expeditions and join the science outreach community in sharing UW-Madison with the public. If you don't have a hands-on activity to present, join us through volunteering in other tasks through out the days. Some of those tasks would be assisting in setting up all the tables, directing families throughout the venues, putting up signs, and many other tasks throughout the day.
- Want to be part of the planning comittee? Join us for our weekly Science Alliance meetings on Mondays at 10AM in 1360 Genetics-Biotechnology Center.
