WATER: A Statewide Inquiry Experience
The Wisconsin Science Festival partners with the Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s “Reimagine the Science Fair” project to create the Statewide Science Experience. Join with your colleagues to take part in a project designed to fill every school to the last drop with water education!
This multiyear effort encourages teachers to use and share science lessons related to water. It includes a core lesson for students to investigate water runoff in school parking lots and visualize the data throughout the year.
For more information about this effort, contact Travis Tangen, education and outreach manager, at 608-316-4385 or [email protected].
“We just loved the virtual field trip of both BioBlitz and the human brain. The brain hats were a huge hit!! Students were very engaged. Thanks again for this opportunity.”
