This year’s UW-Madison Science Expeditions will held this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 8, 9, and 10. All around campus, there will be events of all kinds from tours, to presentations, to exhibits, to hands-on exploration stations, and almost everything will be in-person. So, tonight, the Perpetual Notion Machine welcomes Tom Zinnen as our guest to give a rundown on a few of the goings-on. Tom is an outreach assistant and biotechnology extension specialist at the Biotechnology Center.
One of the highlights this year is the annual Wonders of Physics show, created and performed by Clint Sprott. Saturday and Sunday will have two shows each day, at 1 pm and 4 pm. But events are being held in a variety of science fields, at the Primate Center, the Limnology Lab, the Geology Museum, the Washburn Observatory, and the School of Pharmacy. And there are hands-on exploration stations at Picnic Point, Health Sciences Learning Center, the Arboretum, and the Discovery Building. Plus, there are virtual events to see, including a couple via YouTube.
Tom says that these science expeditions are really an Open House on campus to let the general public know the value of science research to the community and society in general.
