Barry, Halverson and Pickett to participate in Wisconsin Science Festival

November 01, 2017

School of Education faculty members Lynda Barry, Erica Halverson and Kristen Pickett will be participating in the upcoming Wisconsin Science Festival Nov. 2-5.

Barry, an associate professor with the Art Department, holds the Chazen Family Distinguished Chair in Art. Halverson is professor with the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and Pickett is an assistant professor of occupational therapy with the Department of Kinesiology

Wisconsin Science Festival logoBarry and Halverson will take part in an event titled, "Can You Hear Me Now?" This event features hands-on stations, including glass blowing, drawing through radio, electric circuit challenges, creating your own tiny podcast story, radio telescopes, virtual reality and more. "Can You Hear Me Now?" will take place on Friday, Nov. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Discovery Building.

Barry will take part in, ​"The Drawing Niche Grand Opening – Let’s Draw through Radio with Lynda Barry." Join Barry from 6 to 8 p.m. and her image lab team at the debut of the “The Drawing Niche.”   Engage all your senses as you create your own audio-inspired visuals. Unleash your creativity in an environment of science and airwaves inspired by the 1936-1970 WPR Let’s Draw radio program that taught drawing through public radio broadcasts.

Halverson and her students will be structuring an activity for participants to create their own 30- to 60-second “This American Life” style clips.  This will showcase the movement of media delivery options from broadcast to narrowcast and how the doors to media creation and distribution are more wide open than ever before.

Pickett will take part in "Living on Mars," an event on Saturday, Nov. 4, involving "Mars Invades Madison" stations at the Discovery Expo from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., and an interactive talk with a panel of experts at 2 p.m. in the DeLuca Forum at the Discovery Building.

The Wisconsin Science Festival (WSF) aims to engage communities with science and discovery.
