Since 2006, over 500 rural Wisconsin students have had the opportunity to dive deeper into science thanks to the summer science camp. Last year, the camp was transformed into a virtual workshop series. This year, 106 students and 29 educators from 21 school from Wisconsin participated. The virtual series included 25 unique presenters over 12 sessions. Some sessions included hands-on activities that were a part of a kit that was mailed to participants. In total, over
598 attended the sessions.
The workshop builds personal connections between students and scientists and uses storytelling to help students imagine their own paths into scientific careers. The aim is simple—build student confidence that a college education, and a career or job in science are within reach.
Thank you to the Morgridge Institute for Research for hosting this summer science series
