Students from around the state will participate in the Wyoming Science Fair.

The opportunities for education will be abundant for participants in the Wyoming State Science Fair, as staff and faculty from the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) will provide enrichment activities.

The Wyoming State Science Fair is Sunday, March 6 through Tuesday, March 8 in Laramie, Wyo., at the University of Wyoming. Students in grades 6 through 12 will plan, organize, research, prepare and present a project of their interest. Junior Division students (grades 6-8) will compete to enter the Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, Engineering Research Scholars) program, a premier national science competition for middle-school students. The top high-school researchers at the fair will be selected to represent Wyoming at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix in May. It is a great honor to be selected to participate in either of these competitions.

The CEAS will assist with the fair in several areas. Personnel from the college will help set up and perform safety checks. Volunteers will provide enrichment activities for students Monday morning to educate students. Those hands-on activities will be workshops or lab tours that introduce students to an area of science or research. WYSTEM, supported by the CEAS, will host the enrichment activities. Additionally, faculty and staff of the CEAS will serve as judges for the fair.

CEAS faculty and graduate students will judge student exhibits in the following categories: Robotics/Computer/Mathematical Sciences; Engineering Design and Innovation; Energy and Transportation and Materials and Consumer Sciences.
