Why We Need Your Support

The UW–Madison Department of Physics is nationally and internationally renowned based on the interlinked activities of research, teaching, and outreach. In addition to our research activities, which cover physics at all scales, since 1984, we have welcomed more than 100,000 visitors to one of the more than 300 presentations of our annual outreach show, The Wonders of Physics. We are also proud to be the home of the oldest continuously operating interactive science museum in the country, the Ingersoll Physics Museum. These important outreach activities are funded entirely by donations.


Join the conversation on social media using #dayofthebadger: proudly sport (and snap a photo of) your Badger-red attire, share your favorite UW­­­ memories, and celebrate the impact Badgers have on the world.
