Graham Stearns has already done a science project on gravitational waves with advice and support from UWM physics grad students. He was among more than 1,500 young scientists in middle and high school taking part in the Wisconsin Science Olympiad at UWM April 6-7.
The failure of even parts of the nation’s power grid could cause rolling blackouts that paralyze health care, traffic and business systems. A pair of UWM professors are aiming to help utilities prepare for that risk by making it easier for insurance companies to cover it.

Joachim Frank, who shared the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry, came to UWM to deliver a colloquium at the invitation of Abbas Ourmazd, a UWM distinguished professor of physics who has published recent papers with Frank.
The earliest complex animals were soft-bodied creatures without bones, which explains why they have left a scant fossil record. The next best thing to validate their existence? Find fossil evidence of their behavior, such as trackways and burrowing. That’s what a group of scientists, including UWM’s Stephen Dornbos, recently uncovered in ancient marine rocks of […]
A film crew from the Korean Broadcasting System recently completed a documentary about fostering new water technology – and devoted 10 minutes of its show to activities in Milwaukee, including the water sensors developed by UWM engineer Woo-Jin Chang.
Electric cars are wonders of whiz-bang technology, but they have an Achilles heel – their lithium-ion batteries are less efficient in cold weather. Researchers at UWM have come up with a solution.
Who needs Punxsutawney Phil? A new forecasting tool created with models built by UWM climatologist Mark Schwartz just may put the spring-predicting groundhog, who may or may not cast his shadow on Feb. 2, out of work.
