Best of the Fest: 2019 Wisconsin Science Festival in photos

The Wisconsin Science Festival—now in its ninth year—offered more than 330 events across the state for people of all ages to dive into science topics. Through a combination of lectures, flash talks and hands-on activities, visitors learned about the importance of bees and pollination, built robots, made new animal friends and explored the intersection of art and science.

We’ve collected some of our favorite moments from the 2019 Wisconsin Science Festival, held Oct. 17-20.
