The University of Wyoming's College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) K-12 outreach program partnered with the Wyoming chapter of American Institute of Architects (AIA) for the second year in a row to inspire the next generation of architects and engineers.

From Nov. 5-9, members from AIA visited fourth-grade classrooms around the state to expose students to the field of architectural engineering and to engage students in a hands-on design challenge. Nearly 400 students participated in the program.

“This is another one of our great partnership programs that not only elevates student learning, but helps to build stronger and more well-connected communities across the state," says Teddi Freedman, the CEAS K-12 outreach coordinator. "I look forward to partnering with the amazing members of AIA again in the future.”
