Expanding Pathways Into Science

Home

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. A few things will change, but rest assured that the programs you care about will not go away and our usual collaborative approach will guide the expansion. 

Find out about our new mission and responsibilities on our About Us page, or read the article from Inside UW–Madison here.

Get Involved in the BioCommons!

The biological sciences on campus are spread over six schools and colleges! This new community and learning space at Steenbock Library will bring us together to connect, collaborate, and learn about opportunities! Learn more 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....



For Bioscience Undergraduates: 
help in exploring biology on campus, making a good start, and getting involved beyond the classroom 

For University Educators:
support for innovative teaching through consultation, resources,  programs, and learning communities

For Pre-College Students:
hands-on science experiences and opportunities to learn more about college and careers
For K-12 Educators:
opportunities to learn more about science and the best ways to help students connect to it

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.
