Curiosity Unleashed! Wisconsin Science Festival, (Oct 22-25)

October 21, 2015

“Unleash your curiosity” with the Wisconsin Science Festival, October 22-25, 2015!

Visit the festival 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 Henry Vilas Zoo 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!

This year’s Friday evening will feature a showcase of Wisconsin-made products. This ticketed event invites the participant to experience a taste of Wisconsin and to engage with innovators and entrepreneurs from campus and community.  Other events for adults include a special Nerd Nite (Science Fest edition) and “Big Ideas for Busy People“.

And, do look for your campus librarians! They will be staffing an “Ask a Librarian” table during the Discovery Expo (Town Center, WID).

Follow the fun with FacebookTwitter and Google+.

Apart from the Friday evening event and a handful of venues throughout the state in which there may be an admission or materials fee, much of the Wisconsin Science Festival is FREE and open to the public.
