Exploring Research



The Exploring Research course, formally Ways of Knowing Biology course for first‐year students focused on exposing students to biological sciences research at UW‐Madison and consisted of faculty presentations about research, mini‐field trips to labs (research explorations) and graduate student shadowing experiences. This course has been replaced by the first‐year Exploring Biology course (Biology 100) as part of WISCIENCE's HHMI Foundations for Success in Undergraduate Biology initiative and the Entering Research course series (Biology 260 – 261) as part of the NSF‐funded Undergraduate Research and Mentoring (URM) program.
