Adult Swim Virtual Science Fair

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

You found it! Below is information for getting involved in the Adult Swim Virtual Science Fair, a collaboration between CaSP, Madison Children’s Museum, and WORT. Originally scheduled for March 2020, this Research!America sponsored event was moved online and rescheduled to July 9th, 2020 from 6-10pm CDT!

The Science Fair is an effort to get Madisonians together to talk about the real impacts of science-related issues on our community, both locally and globally. We’re inviting community members, locals, politicians, and staffers to join us for a relaxed evening of discussion and discovery of all sorts, both serious and silly. Check out the schedule below and REGISTER at tinyurl.com/caspsciencefair!

SCHEDULE

Channel your Inner Astrophysicist with UW Madison’s IceCube Neutrino Observatory- Jim Madsen and Lindsey Steffes

Making sense of the Universe is a tough job, but with a little coaching you can learn how the IceCube Neutrino Observatory does it by detecting cosmic messengers. This interactive session will walk you through how we collect and analyze data. Be prepared, there will be a quiz (a fun quiz!). You will leave the session with a new skill that will impress your friends and relatives.

Prototyping and Patenting with the UW Madison Patent and Trademark Resource Center- David Bloom

Learn about the process of patenting a new invention from an expert. We’ll guide you in prototyping and patenting your own invention that will help your household while we all spend more time at home. Submit your design and patent form back to us to be entered to win the title “Best Quarantine Invention” that comes with a fun prize! Submission will also make you eligible for trivia bonus points for your team later in the night.
