Making science exciting for 41 years

Friday evenings just got spicier with these interactive performances that connect science with your everyday life. The UWM Science Bag educates as it entertains. Each one-hour show is free and designed for the curious, ages 8 to 108. Topics change monthly. Science Bag 2013-2014 Poster (pdf - 850kb)
