Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Racine County held 4-H Science Nights in March which consisted of 11 sessions for youth to attend to the wonders and excitement of science virtually. To follow up, Waukesha and Milwaukee offered youth a chance to discover science and DNA in person on a day trip to UW-Madison. 60 youth and over 10 adult volunteers attended 4-H Science Expeditions on March 7th. Youth and volunteers got to explore the DC Smith GreenHouse, Allen Centennial Garden, The Energy Institute, and do Hands -On DNA Science at Genetics Biotech Center. Youth had the chance to ask scientists and college students about science and college experiences. UW-Madison gave an opportunity to show youth there are many different types of interests out there to discover.
