Join fellow builders across the state so that all 72 counties are well represented by their ‘stacks of color.’ Team with UW-Madison assistant professor Karen Schloss to understand how Wisconsinites perceive the color of ‘hope,’ the color of ‘boredom’ and the color of your favorite song!

Participants can build their stacks online, or they can build in person at the Discovery Building during the four days of the festival. The stacks of color will be showcased in the windows of the Discovery Building to make an amazing representation of art and data guided by UW-Madison artist-in-residence Stuart Flack. On Sunday, October 14, UW-Madison assistant professor Kevin Ponto will join Karen and Stuart to scan the data stored in the stacks of color and convene a panel discussion around the project. If you can’t make it in person, there will be a video archive of the presentation available soon after the Wisconsin Science Festival.

Teachers will have the ability to analyze and manipulate the data for data visualization projects in the classroom after the Wisconsin Science Festival at https://wisconsinsciencefest.org/teachers/.
