The Town Center at the Discovery Building is an exceptional destination for scientific exploration. Students are invited to explore, engage and discover science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Our activities cover a broad spectrum of scientific topics. In one 45-minute activity, students may learn about fossils, water chemistry, anthropology or Fibonacci.
This public lecture series, held at 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of most months, addresses challenging and engaging social science topics such as politics, policy issues, ethics, public perceptions, law and science and society.
Saturday Science at Discovery is a monthly series that features interactive exploration stations centered around a particular topic. Families and learners of all ages are invited to explore hands-on science fun during this free drop-in event in the Town Center.
Our programs highlight the rich range of scientific expertise at UW-Madison.
