Speed Science-ing

Women in Science

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Discovery Building | 330 North Orchard Street, Madison, WI 53715



To be proactive, we are cancelling our Women in Science: Speed Science-ing event tonight. 

UW-Madison sent an email this morning (03/11/20) to campus issuing new course and event limitations in response to COVID-19. While there are relatively few confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Dane County, the number of cases nationally continues to grow. The university is taking a proactive approach to limit potential spread by canceling events that have a potential for 50 + participants starting today, and transitioning courses to an online format starting March 14th.  

Stay tuned – we will reschedule Women in Science. Look for an email update with more information at a later date. (We will be exploring an online version.)

Thank you for your interest in our Science to Script program, we look forward to connecting with you in the future! 


Science to Script provides programs for national and local audiences. Programming includes: Master Writer's Residencies for professional storytellers (including but not limited to screenwriters, playwrights and authors); and 'Speed Science-ing' Events for our local storytellers.
