The Wisconsin MRSEC Creates Content

The Wisconsin MRSEC creates research-inspired educational resources through the collaborative efforts of researchers, teachers, and outreach professionals. These resources are field tested, evaluated, refined, and then disseminated to the public. The UW MRSEC has developed over 125 research-inspired science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) resources, which are both scientifically and pedagogically rigorous. Over 1.75 million people have accessed these resources either in person or online through our MRSEC education website.
