Wisconsin Science Festival Teacher Opportunities October 16–19, 2014

Science Festival Field Trips

Elementary, middle and high school classes are encouraged to attend the festival on Thursday and Friday, October 16 and 17. Visits to the festival are free of charge and limited transportation assistance is available to support your visit. Hands-on exploration stations will be offered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. These exploration stations will cover a wide breadth of science, technology, engineering, arts and math activities appropriate for all ages. New this year will be a limited number of dedicated sessions and in-lab experiences for middle and high school classes.
In 2013 more than 44 schools brought more than 2900 K-12 students from as far away as Chicago, Brookfield and Minong. Register now and put the Wisconsin Science Festival in your lesson plan book for October 16 or October 17 next fall.   

Science Festival Teacher Workshops

Be on the cutting edge and attend a professional development workshop while at the Wisconsin Science Festival. Science festival teacher workshops will connect you with educators and scientists who are leaders in science, technology, engineering, arts and math education to help you integrate best practices in science education at your school. Teacher workshops will be offered throughout the festival and will be free of charge; most workshops will be held on Saturday, October 18.
