The primary purpose of the University of Wisconsin–Madison is to provide a learning environment in which faculty, staff and students can discover, examine critically, preserve and transmit the knowledge, wisdom and values that will help ensure the survival of this and future generations and improve the quality of life for all.
The Chemistry–Biology Interface Training Program is dedicated to discovery of knowledge and transmitting that knowledge to the public to improve the quality of life for all. We strongly encourage all of our participants, both faculty and students, to engage in science communication and outreach at UW and beyond.
Here we list opportunities for outreach and for training in science communication. This list will be updated frequently, and will include ongoing opportunities as well as one-time events.
