Prospective students, area schools, the campus community, and the public are invited to join us for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Science Discovery Day on November 9th, 2012 from 12:30-3:30pm in Upham Hall.  Discover the sciences in a whole new way by taking part in hands on activities like preforming organic synthesis, modeling transgenesis, walking through a 3D chemical lab in the Second Life computer program, and becoming part of the Discovery Day locational map.  Experience demonstrations on state of the art equipment, such as a unique plasma reactor developed by our very own Physics Department and the Atomic Force Microscope.  See the high-tech research being completed at our campus by our undergraduate research students and faculty.  Tour our departments and labs.  Sit down and visit with the scientific experts who will excite visitors of all ages to become more engaged in the sciences.  Cap off the day with an exciting lecture by Dr. Rex Hanger entitled “How old is the Earth and how do we know?” from 8-9pm in Upham Hall 140 and viewing of our neighboring planets and stars through a telescope at the Whitewater Observatory.
