UW-Madison highlights research at 2016 Science Expedition

UW-Madison hosted its 14th annual Science Expedition over the weekend to highlight research performed by students, faculty and scientists at the university.

The expedition allowed attendees to interact with students and professors at UW-Madison laboratories, museums, greenhouses and research centers. Over the course of three days, more than 100 total presentations were open to visitors.

The expedition began Friday with events at the Washburn Observatory and UW Geology Museum. The observatory was re-opened in March after being closed for nearly two years.

The planned participant stations happened at various locations, though the majority were held Saturday at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. The stations covered many topics in the science field, ranging from farming in space to using wastewater as fertilizer. There was also a free trolley service that helped transport visitors between stations.

Thousands of visitors were expected to attend the 2016 Science Expedition, according to a university release.
