Be part of #WiSciFest!
October 14-20, 2024

You’re invited to host an event for #WiSciFest 2024! Join hundreds of organizations around Wisconsin that connect people with science, technology, engineering, art and math. More than 51 counties and 41,000 people participated last year.

Special opportunities for 2024 include Badger Talks, the Wisconsin BioBlitz, exploration days and more.

Official festival feature: AGRICULTURE

The Wisconsin Science Festival welcomes all disciplines utilizing science, technology, or art to explore and nurture curiosity. Each year, we spotlight a specific topic to emphasize its significance and value to the state and its people.

In 2024, our focus is on agriculture, aiming to showcase its profound impact on our world. Our mission is to illustrate the interconnectedness of agriculture within our state’s economy, society, well-being, and the overall future of humanity through the lens of science, art, and technology. Events related to the festival feature are not required for participation!
