Bucky’s Classroom

Bucky’s Classroom is a University of Wisconsin–Madison outreach program, committed to promoting the value of higher education among K-8 students across the state of Wisconsin and beyond. The program, administered by Campus and Visitor Relations, provides teachers, students and educational leaders with UW–Madison classroom resources, as well as an opportunity to directly engage with university students. By bringing UW–Madison into the classroom, K-8 students will begin to build a better understanding of college, learn about UW–Madison and discover the importance of establishing a strong foundation for their future, rooted in education. During the 2016–17 school year, 751 schools throughout the country received UW–Madison classroom materials and resources, impacting over 15,700 students.
