Wyoming Undergraduate Research Day 2014

The event will take place Saturday, April 26, noon to 4 p.m., in the Classroom Building and the Wyoming Union. This year, more than 360 UW students and Wyoming community college students are expected to present their research. Undergraduate Research Day recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of undergraduate student researchers.

Rick Matlock, senior project coordinator for Wyoming’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), describes the event as “a celebration of research.”

“These students aren’t lab assistants washing test tubes or cleaning cages. These students are designing and implementing their own research projects,” Matlock says. “It’s not uncommon for many of these students to graduate with their names published in peer-reviewed journals. In terms of graduate school admission or career development, that’s huge.” [More]

Energy Innovation Center

Shell 3-D CAVE | Laboratories | Encana Auditorium | Reserve Rooms | Tours

The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in January 2013 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research and outreach.  This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, located on the northwest corner of UW’s Laramie campus, includes 27,300 net square feet of highly technical research space, as well as office, classroom, and meeting space. Approximately 12,500 square feet of the EIC is designated for six rapidly reconfigurable, ultramodern laboratory spaces that will play a key role in advancing SER’s strategic areas of concentration.
