Why does research matter and who does the research? Meet diverse scientists and explore science with them in a set of online learning experiences the scientists helped to create. We are so excited to debut two new labs as part of the growing collection for this year’s Wisconsin Science Festival! Links to these two Meet the Lab experiences will be available starting the week of the festival.

Data Decoders: Superpowered by Computers – The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery’s Solis-Lemus lab develops math models to answer biological questions. The lab deals with modern big data in living systems and uses math to better understand life.

Virus Investigators: Superpowered by Electron Microscopes – The Virology Research Team at the Morgridge Institute uses multiple approaches to accelerate understanding of virus replication including super amazing technologies that can see itsy bitsy viruses in great detail.

The project is a Discovery Building partnership with PBS Wisconsin Education as part of the Timothy William Trout Education Fund, a gift of Monroe and Sandra Trout. These learning opportunities show how diverse groups of people work together across disciplines to pursue answers to questions about our world.

This is an online event.
