UPDATE 5-9-16

We have experienced some changes and addition with EXPO, for the most part, this is good! But, it has delayed us.  We will have several tours and activities loaded into Avogadro by mid-day tomorrow.  Coaches will then be able to go onto Avogadro and select times for your students.

NOTE: There will be buses available for off-campus tours, but all students must have a chaperone with them.

Expo And Aurora Stage

Join UW-Stout, our Sponsors and Strategic Partners in an exciting exploration of STEM in our region. The STEM Expo will begin on Thursday morning and continue through Friday afternoon.  Teams can expect to explore in-depth the many laboratories at UW-Stout as well as activities throughout the community.  Plan to arrive on campus early to participate in this great opportunity.  Teams will be asked to sign-up online for many of these activities in advance.  A bus shuttle service will be provided to take teams to and from activities off campus. Check back to learn about the many opportunities that will be available during the Expo. Expo schedule coming soon!
