Curiosity Unleashed! (WI Science Fest, Oct 16-19)

October 7th, 2014

“Unleash your curiosity” with the Wisconsin Science Festival, October 16-19, 2014!

Visit the festival website program guide to plan your day (and month).  While many events and programs will take place at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, there are many other area venues including the Overture Center and the Madison Children’s Museum that will be hosting special events.

The festival affords an amazing opportunity to dabble creatively in the sciences with hands-on activities, demonstrations, exhibits, films, lectures, workshops, and more.  Importantly, too, you will meet the individuals behind the art and science who will share an infectious enthusiasm for what they do–whether that is their work in the lab, field or studio.  Be sure to ask plenty of questions!

And, do look for your campus librarians! They will be staffing an “Ask a Librarian/Ask a Science Librarian” table during the Discovery Expo (Town Center, WID).  What with our interest in the sciences and science literacy, how can we resist being where the action is–we look forward to seeing you there!

New this year is the “Science of Supper Clubs” on Friday, October 17.  This ticketed event invites participants to experience a taste of Wisconsin and to engage with CALS faculty and staff, Steenbock librarians and a panel of authors (Terese Allen, Ron Faiola and Robin Shepard) who will speak to the history and appeal of this restaurant tradition.

Follow the fun via Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

The Wisconsin Science Festival is free and open to the public.
