We're Expanding to Become WISCIENCE!
The Institute for Biology Education is expanding to become WISCIENCE (start out saying Wisconsin and end up saying Science)—the long title is the Wisconsin Institute for Science Education and Community Engagement. Find out about our new mission and responsibilities on our About Us page, or read the article from Inside UW–Madison here.
WISCIENCE provides a central source of information and support for people who want to make the most of all UW–Madison has to offer in the sciences, whether they're interested in pursuing a degree themselves or helping the next generation of young scientists. There's no limit to the possibilities....

WISCIENCE encourages whole-person, whole-life learning in science—learning that goes beyond the boundaries of any classroom or campus. This requires innovative programs, resources, and collaborations that help sharpen the tools for scientific inquiry while connecting them with real-world situations. Innovative excellence in science education not only improves the practice of science, it also contributes to a more informed and active citizenry and a flourishing planet.
