Engineering Summer Program

August 12, 2011

The College of Engineering and Applied Science hosted the annual Engineering Summer Program (ESP) with thirty high school students from Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska and Montana in attendance. The program, sponsored by the Wyoming Engineering Society, J. Kenneth and Pat Kennedy Endowment, and the College of Engineering and Applied Science, provides an opportunity for students to learn about the engineering discipline. ESP also serves as an excellent recruiting tool for the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The program is a way to impress upon participants that science, math, and engineering can be exciting, interesting, and rewarding.

Students attended the program this summer for a fun filled week of classes, field trips, and activities. This year’s ESP offered hands-on classes in composite materials, robotics, computer science, computer electronics, engineering structures, and chemical rockets. Evening activities included a trip to the climbing wall in Half Acre Gymnasium, bowling, a viewing at the UW Planetarium, picnics, sports, and summertime fun. Jeff Anderson of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering was this year's program coordinator.

If you know a student who will be a junior in high school in fall 2011, send us their name and we will make sure they are added to our ESP 2012 mailing list. For more information, contact Jeff Anderson at or 307-766-3180.
