Join the community and host a 2017 Wisconsin Science Festival event!

During four days each fall, hundreds of venues around Wisconsin participate in the Wisconsin Science Festival, a statewide celebration that connects people with science, technology, engineering, art and math. This year's festival will be held November 2–5.

You're invited to become one of the many event hosts throughout the state. Sign up today, or learn more about hosting an event.

Participation is simple and free – all you have to do is provide the program. We encourage proposals from nonprofit organizations, colleges, universities and K-12 schools interested in the sciences, arts and humanities or creative combinations of the three disciplines.

Why participate? Reach new audiences, create community connections and more.
