Several events related to the CEAS are taking place in April.

Several events related to the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Wyoming are on the horizon.
SWE Banquet On Tap For April 12
The UW chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) will host the fourth annual Student-Faculty Banquet for the CEAS.
The banquet, which takes place April 12, features a meal and an opportunity to visit with professors and students from the CEAS. The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Enzi STEM Atrium. UW President Laurie Nichols will be in attendance as a special guest, and CEAS Dean Michael Pishko will serve as the keynote speaker.
RSVP by April 5 to Attire for the dinner is business casual.
SWE’s mission at UW is “to encourage women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life and demonstrate the value of diversity.”
Own It! Awards Ceremony
Women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) will be recognized during the Own it! Awards on Tuesday, April 18, from 6-8 p.m. in the Enzi STEM Atrium.
Researchers from the UW campus were nominated for their outstanding scientific and scholarly achievements. Many will receive awards in categories for students, staff and faculty members. Nominations were made by persons on campus who work directly with the nominees.
Awards nomination criteria, developed by Wyoming EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research), included:
-- A female student, staff or faculty member who has made significant contributions to her field of research in the last 18 months.
-- Demonstrates aptitude and scholarly success.

College of Engineering and Applied Science K-14 Outreach Coordinator Teddi Hofmann will again serve as a volunteer at a state-level SkillsUSA competition. The 2017 version of the Wyoming State Skills and Leadership Conference will take place April 24-26 in Casper, Wyo.
Hofmann volunteered at the 2016 event, leading a student activity. She was a judge in the “Engineering Technology” portion of the competition, and also facilitated a hands-on engineering activity wherein students were presented with the challenge to design a bike helmet with limited materials.
SkillsUSA is a career-technical student organization that serves students in secondary and post-secondary technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations. According to the organization’s website, “SkillsUSA prepares America's high-performance workers and provides quality education experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. SkillsUSA builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills. It emphasizes total quality at work, high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education and pride in the dignity of work.”
