UWM Science Bag 2015-2016

Making science exciting for 43 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.

Presentations are held in Room 137 of the Physics Building, corner of E. Kenwood Blvd. and N. Cramer St.  Shows begin at 8:00pm every Friday, with a 2:00pm matinee one Sunday each month.
