Students at UWM and UW-Madison have designed an energy efficient home that’s adaptable enough to be built on almost any of the vacant lots in Milwaukee.
Dan Egan, an environmental journalist and author of the “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes,” has been named the Brico Fund Journalist in Residence at the Center for Water Policy in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences.
UWM is addressing the need for “upskilling” by launching TechEd Frontiers, a workforce development learning platform that offers online, on-demand pathways, or courses, that can advance people in high-demand jobs.
Emma Kraco was always interested in biological sciences in elementary and high school. “I loved looking for bugs, looking at tiny things up close. It just made sense to get interested in water, especially fresh water. It’s absolutely teeming with life all the time.”
Many organisms use sunlight to fuel cellular functions. But exactly how does this conversion of solar energy into chemical energy unfold?
The quiz competition has raised knowledge of and spurred interest in freshwater and ocean science among high school students across the Midwest.
A group of UWM researchers is part of the collaboration of scientists that used 13 years of data to find what could be the first direct detection of low-frequency gravitational waves.
The statewide surveillance project is a collaboration between UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene.
If you wanted to look for life on planets around stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets, you would first locate the ones in the “Goldilocks zone.” That’s the area – not too close, not too far – at just the right distance from a star where a planet might have liquid water.
The U.S. Department of Energy recently awarded funding to a startup launched by two UWM professors for a collaboration with the Argonne National Laboratory in suburban Chicago on research that will help their company commercialize the material.
