Wisconsin Science Festival

A statewide celebration with events for all ages.

Be part of #WiSciFest!
October 10-16, 2022

You’re invited to host an event for #WiSciFest 2022! Join hundreds of organizations around Wisconsin that connect people with science, technology, engineering, art and math. More than 90 communities and 40,000 people participated last year.

Special opportunities for 2022 include Badger Talks, the Wisconsin BioBlitz, virtual field trips and more.

Official festival feature: Glass!

Each year, we highlight a specific aspect of the world around us to generate additional excitement and creativity within events and programs. This year, as a nod to the “International Year of Glass,” we are proud to focus on glass and the many ways it impacts science, art and technology.

Glass can help us see new perspectives, improve our communication and further explore our world and beyond. Whether we are looking at something too small or far away to see with our human eyes or using technology (like the smartphone or computer monitor you’re reading this on), chances are that glass is involved.

*Events showcasing the science and art of glass are encouraged but this is NOT a requirement to host an event.
