Special Events


Every year Continuing Education hosts up to 200 middle school girls at our GEMS (girls, engineering, math, and science) conference.  This year GEMS will take place on Saturday, April 14.  Please call our office for more information or to register.


Our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Day continued this year at the UW-Waukesha campus.  Students from 6 different schools spent the day at UW- Waukesha exploring different STEM career fields by attending hands-on workshops. Students ended their day by engineering a container for our annual egg drop and earned their certificate of completion in the UW-Waukesha - Milwaukee County Extension 4H Systematics program. Certificates will be awarded at their graduation ceremony in May.


Continuing Education works closely with 4-H to bring “Rediscover 4-H, Discover Continuing Education”, to our campus every year.  This is an all-day event that allows community members to discover what 4-H has to offer, and sample a variety of Continuing Education classes.
