Wisconsin Science Festival

A statewide celebration with events for all ages.

Thank you to our sponsors, partners, volunteers & presenters for helping making our 13th festival a success!

In 2023, thousands of people celebrated science at hundreds of events throughout Wisconsin during the weeklong Wisconsin Science Festival, with activities including hands-on science experiments, live Q&A sessions and interviews with scientists, demonstrations, performances, nature explorations, Science in a Bag kits and more.

Save the date to join us again next year, October 14-20, 2024.
