Sharing science content with individuals not traditionally part of the scientific community.



Maker Faire Milwaukee

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects. The Milwaukee Area Science Advocates will  have a booth at the event where you can learn how to make a microscope using a few resources you can find around your house and the camera on your phone. Join us…

Science Book Drive
  • Pillar: Science Education
  • Objective: Encourage science education by offering science books to kids who may not otherwise have access to them, so we can continue to inspire the younger generation to pursue and be excited about science.
  • Details:
    • Host an after school event at Browning Elementary School to introduce a variety of sciences through fun and interactive activities.
    • Host an after school event at Carmen High School of Science and Technology to offer hands on activities to supplement their science curriculum.
  • Goals: To develop a relationship with the students and their families, teachers and the school and to build an ongoing after school science program to continue to encourage and inspire a student’s interest in science.

Our goal is to get as many science books into the hands of Milwaukee’s kids as possible this fall. We’re collecting science books at a number of locations with a goal of reaching 50 locations collecting a total of 10,000 books. The science books will be donated to the students at Browning Elementary and Carmen Middle School and High School of Science and Technology as part of a science event at the school this fall.
