2022 Tiny Earth in Titletown

Tiny Earth in Titletown connects students, parents, faculty, and community members from the region to showcase Tiny Earth students’ research in antibiotic discovery while spreading awareness of the antibiotic resistance crisis. After three years since the last Tiny Earth in Titletown, we are excited to announce the relaunch of this in-person event hosted by a committee of Tiny Earth Instructors at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, College of Menominee Nation, and St. Norbert University.

The evening will include a student poster presentation session, tours of Lambeau Field, and a keynote from Dr. David Andes, a professor of Medicine and Medical Microbiology & Immunology and the chief of Division of Infectious Disease within the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
