More than 400 people were encouraged to discover their inner scientist during Family Science Night at the UW Space Place on Friday, Nov. 22. The outreach event, presented by South Madison Promise Zone and UW Space Place, welcomed the public to engage with UW-Madison researchers and learn through a number of hands-on experiments and exhibits that ranged from astronomy to zoology.
