WIRC awarded 2020 Instructional Laboratory Modernization (ILM) grant

An Instructional Laboratory Modernization (ILM) grant was recently awarded to the WIRC. This grant, administered through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at UW-Madison, will allow us to enhance our role as an undergraduate teaching laboratory by providing the resources to improve our physical space in Russell Laboratories and to acquire additional microscopes and computers. Students regularly visit and use the WIRC as an integral component of their Entomology coursework, for work on independent or directed study projects, or as interns from the Zoology 405 course: Introduction to Museum Studies in the Natural Sciences. (Funding period: July 2019–December 2019)
