Tale of Scale


2014 - Present

This interdisciplinary STE(A)M teaching and outreach program integrates astronomy, mathematics, and storytelling to communicate science. Tale of Scale brings together two unlikely subjects - Physics and Theatre - to teach undergraduates and the general public about scale in the universe (from the subatomic to the extragalactic) while inspiring participants to pursue STEM careers. Tale of Scale is funded by grants from the UWM Research Grant Initiative and The Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium. More information can be found at people.uwm.edu/rmello.
