UW's Engineers Week programs reaches the state's third-grade students to educate them in engineering concepts.

Third-grade teachers in Wyoming interested in exploring engineering with their students are urged to sign up for the 2019 Engineers Week program. This free partnership program, hosted by the University of Wyoming, brings professional engineers into third-grade classrooms around the state to lead a hands-on activity that encourages students to apply their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

The program will take place Feb. 18-22, 2019. It is an opportunity for Wyoming teachers to incorporate engineering concepts into their curriculum, which has ties to the state science standards.

Teddi Freedman, the K-12 Outreach Coordinator for the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science, will match participating teachers with a professional engineer from the same community to build relationships. Teachers who want to be involved can register for the program.

This will be the fourth annual Engineers Week program. In the 2018 program, the CEAS engaged with more than 3,300 Wyoming third-grade students.

Teachers with questions can contact Freedman at or 307-766-4236.
