2023 Field Trip

Student field trip gets hands-on: from the nanoscale to big energy solutions

Fifth graders from Shorewood Hill Elementary, a school in the Madison Metropolitan School District, attended a field trip to the Discovery Building this month.

Led by the Discovery Connections team, the trip featured two activities developed in partnership with UW–Madison: “Size and Scale: Nanotechnology and a world too small to see” with the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), and “Sustainability of Energy” with the WI Energy Institute.
