STEM Immersion: Climate Solutions Workshop

October 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

WISCIENCE STEM Immersion welcomes and prepares first-year undergraduates and returning students for success at UW–Madison through cultivating a STEM-focused community and continual learning environment.

STEM Immersion aims to facilitate the transition and persistence of STEM students by offering opportunities and experiences to discover, engage, and integrate into the intellectual, cultural, and social facets of the STEM community at UW-Madison.

STEM Immersion: Climate Solutions Workshop

In partnership with the Wisconsin Energy Institute, WISCIENCE will host an interactive and engaging conversation on climate solutions using the cutting-edge computer modeling software, En-ROADS. This simulation allows participants to test climate change solutions such as energy supply, economic growth, land use, and other policies in order to deepen understanding of how these systems interact, and to spur climate action.

En-ROADS is developed by Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, and MIT Sloan, and is used by people all over the world to frame conversations about climate change solutions. The Wisconsin Energy Institute facilitators have been trained as En-ROADs ambassadors by Climate Interactive and we are excited for them to host this workshop!
