Science Discovery Day 2013

Fall 2013

UWW Science Outreach put on a Science Discovery Day this past fall semester to show off what the UWW Science departments have to offer! Students of all ages, from schools all around the area were invited to attend. They got to see exciting demonstrations, participate in hands-on activities, walk through science research labs, and tour the science facilities!  No matter what type of science you prefer we had a little bit of everything! From physics and chemistry to biology and geography/geology, we had it all! Also there were chances to meet with faculty and students to ask questions! It was a great success and we look forward to doing it again in 2014!  So please keep an eye out for our upcoming Science Discovery Days!
