Saturday Enrichment  Program provides a student-centered environment to explore a wide range of interests and academic areas. This program empowers students to learn about academic options, career choices, and personal interests in an active learning environment. Courses focus on S.T.E.A.M.: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics utilizing state-of-the-art campus resources while students interact with UW- Madison faculty, staff, and community professionals. We have an open enrollment policy and class assignments are on a first-come, first-served basis.
