School of Education graduate students and faculty members Leema Berland, Rosemary Russ and Noah Weeth Feinstein on April 7 took part in UW-Madison's Science Expeditions event. But unlike many of their counterparts from across campus, this group not only delivered interesting and interactive learning activities — it also spoke with families about their everyday experiences and the science underlying them in an effort to bolster and improve out-of-school science ventures. This is part of their Grand Challenges Engage project, “Curiosity Practice: A powerful new lever for science engagement across Wisconsin.”
