Since 1989, WISCIENCE (the Wisconsin Institute for Science Education and Community Engagement) collaborates with educators at all levels to create model programs, courses, events, projects, resources, forums for dialogue, and other solutions that help broaden participation in science and make science education and mentoring more effective for more people—at UW-Madison, in K-12 schools, and beyond.
Originally founded as the Center for Biology Education, the Center was a cross-campus unit focusing in improving biology education. It has gone through multiple transformations over the years in response to campus needs but has always remained a cross-campus unit, serving the entire university as well as the surrounding community. Since then the core programs and initiatives that had grown from the original Center for Biology Education were recognized as making significant contributions, particularly with regard to facilitating cross-campus collaboration and expanding access to science education for groups underrepresented in science. To support further development of this work, the mission was expanded beyond the biological sciences to all of the natural sciences. To match the mission, the name was changed to WISCIENCE.
