Biocore Outreach Ambassadors

Mission:

The mission of the Undergraduate Biocore Outreach Ambassadors is to work with K-12 teachers, students, and their families in Wisconsin communities to enhance science education. As an extension of the UW-Madison Biocore Program, the Outreach Ambassador Program was founded in 2004 to promote authentic scientific investigation and exploration by elementary, middle, and high school students.
