For Teachers: Field Trips & Professional Development Workshops
FIELD TRIPS & TEACHER WORKSHOPS
The 2018 Wisconsin Science Festival field trips and teacher workshops are wonderful opportunities to connect elementary, middle and high school classes with the incredible science that is happening across Wisconsin.
Registration opens in mid-August.
Discovery Building, UW-Madison Campus
The renowned Discovery Expo will once again feature dozens of interactive, hands-on exploration stations for K-12 students. The activities include past favorites and new ones like augmented reality, the future of bees and pollinators, medical careers and organ exploration!
Other UW-Madison Destinations
Several other UW-Madison campus groups provide unique field trip stops. The Science Festival Loop will include sites like the UW Dairy Barn, the Wisconsin National Primate Center and the Geology Museum.
The Wisconsin Science Festival will include field trip options across the state and activities you can participate in (or host) right in your community.
Art-ify your data – a statewide project to better understand Wisconsin through building with Legos® and data visualization.
Lunchroom leftovers – a statewide analysis of food waste with support of the Field Day Lab teacher fellows and the Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers.
Showcase Science in Your Local Community
If you can’t make it to a science festival site, you can participate in or host an event in your community. From family science nights to collecting soil as part of the Small World Initiative, we can help you bring the science festival to your location.
