Designing Facilities to Build Campus and Public Communities
This presentation is a part of "The New Constellation" seminar series, sponsored by The Center for Biology Education, the Science Alliance at UW-Madison, and WISCAPE. The title of the series refers to the forthcoming "bright spots" on campus for science outreach: the Microbial Sciences building (opens fall 2007), the WID/MIR building (opens 2010), the new Union South (opens 2011), and the renovation of Old Biochemistry. These four locations will provide new places for UW-Madison to welcome visitors to campus for experiencing and learning about science. The new venues will also enable science outreach programs to retool and refuel the Wisconsin Idea. Some science outreach programs will be relocated into these buildings but all programs will be affected by these new spaces and opportunities to connect to learners of all ages throughout Wisconsin.
