Outreach

Following UW-Madison’s policy guidelines and Wisconsin’s declaration of a public health emergency due to COVID-19, the Discovery Building is closed to the public and events have been canceled.

Through Discovery Outreach, we spark a curiosity in science for thousands of children, families and educators across Wisconsin. Our cutting-edge, hands-on science programs and events – many of them free – introduce vibrant UW-Madison science to an eager public looking to expand their creativity and imagination.

Our programs include the signature, annual Wisconsin Science Festival that celebrates science across the state of Wisconsin, as well as weekly and monthly programs that bring science to economically disadvantaged elementary, middle and high school students.

Discovery Outreach is a partnership effort of the Morgridge Institute for Research and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
