The 12th annual Wisconsin Science Festival boasted a full week of more than 300 events virtually and in-person across the state for people of all ages to dive into science topics. Through a combination of lectures, flash talks and hands-on activities, attendees celebrated historical scientific discoveries, nourished their curiosity, and explored the intersection of art and science.
